After many years of keeping a careful distance, Gaspard, 25 years old, has to renew contact with his family when his father announces he is getting remarried. Accompanied by Laura, an eccentric girl, who agrees to play the role of his girlfriend for the wedding, he finally feels ready to set foot again in his parents' zoo where he is reunited with the monkeys and tigers he grew up with. But between a father who's too much of a womanizer, a brother who's too square and a sister who's far too beautiful, he's not aware that he is preparing to live the last days of his childhood.
A collection of absurd situations that will lead to final redemption
The film begins with an absurd situation: a young woman shackles herself on the train tracks protesting against something that she does not even know what it is. On the train, a young man who goes to his father's wedding and, without knowing anything else, invites the young woman to pass by his girlfriend for the nest three days. Everything and everyone seems exotic: the sister, who uses a bear skin and stinks, the father, who enters a tank with fish to treat eczema; the house where they live, which looks like an abandoned warehouse. Oh, and they own a zoo. In this context of chaos, this family will be reunited, while the father is getting married (or not) and the zoo will be sold. There are no answres, just a collection of absurd situations, that lead to a final redemption.
