As junior high students in a quiet Paris suburb, Microbe and Gasoline seem made for each other; down to the fact that neither of them chose their nickname: Microbe is called that because he is a frail nerd often mistaken for a girl; Gasoline is a snarky gearhead who knows his way around an engine but has no real friends. When the latter transfers to Microbe’s class, the two become fast pals, teaming up to build their own ramshackle automobile.
