Written by the directorial duo, the story sees Fiona, a Canadian librarian, arrive in Paris to come and help her old aunt Martha, who is threatened with the prospect of being put into a retirement home. But Fiona loses her luggage and discovers that Martha has disappeared. It is the start of a whole string of catastrophes that will lead her to cross paths with Dom, a selfish, conceited and clingy homeless person, who ruins her life.
