As one of the hottest furniture designers in Paris, Valentine is about to enjoy a retrospective of the works he created with his wife Constance, with whom he runs a fancy design firm known for making minimalist tables and chairs. However, Valentin, who has always claimed to be an orphan, is horrified when his mother, his brother and sister-in-law, turn up.

Valentin’s family runs an auto salvage lot. They drink, fight and speak in a slang that’s hard to understand, even for French people.

To prevent the media from finding out about the existence of his uncouth family, which could compromise his ability to obtain of a certain big contract, Constance’s father, the principal investor in the couple’s design firm, hits Valentin with his car.

When Valentin comes out of the coma, he behaves and speaks as if he were 17 years old again, when he was proudly living his life of Ch'ti in the north of France with his beloved girlfriend Louloute, whom he was planning to marry.
