François, in his early fifties, successfully runs a computer business in Normandy. He has recently developed a new product which an American corporation wants to acquire at any cost. But François refuses to be bought out in spite of head engineer Rolland's insistent advice. His personal life, on the other hand, is a failure: Caroline, his wife for twenty-five years, is leaving him, and his relationship with his daughter could be better. One day, he meets Florence, a pretty damsel in distress who soon blooms into a "model employee"... Written by
