Damien Hauer is a professor of Chinese civilization whose life with his stage director girlfriend Iva Delusi has become rather stagnant and miserable. Things get more complicated for him, however, when she makes him promise to help her immigrant friend Zorica when threats of her deportation arise. To do this he must condescend to speak to his father Sebastien; an important figure in the French Council of State. However, Damien has not spoken to his father in several years and finds it very difficult to accept his quirks and have a good relationship - after all, relationships of any sort are not his strong point. If Damien's task does not go well, he faces permanently severing ties with Sebastien and losing his partner who is becoming increasingly frustrated and hurt by his lack of affection.
