Daughter Léa (Sarah-Jeanne Salvy) is in unrequited love with Reo (Martin Randez), a boxer who has instead entered a relationship with her mother Lizette (France Castel), while her sister Manon (Céline Bonnier) has a crush on Chester Celine (François Cruzet), a writer she has never met, and her father Marcel (Michel Côté) remains hurt by Lizette's betrayal of him.
