Written by the director with contributions from Vincent Mariette, the story revolves around Michel and his brother Frank, who are partners in a small construction business. When Michel meets Michèle, an estate agent who has handed a huge building site over to them, it’s love at first sight. But in order to charm her, Michel must come to a compromise with Frank, whose scheming will soon jeopardise his plans to win her over...
