Synopsis
Laurent and Loli are happily married with two beautiful children. Laurent is a successful businessman who runs a real estate agency in the south of France while Loli spends her days as a housewife. Laurent is also a philanderer who has a series of extramarital affairs while Loli remains blissfully unaware of his extracurricular activities. One day Laurent and Loli's harmonious lifestyle is disrupted when Marijo's camper breaks down outside their house. Laurent and Marijo have only one thing in common--they both like women. When Marijo begins to pursue Loli, however, a threatened Laurent fights to keep his marriage intact. The fragile triangle that develops proves both funny and moving.
