Xavier and Yvan, two screenwriting friends with completely opposite natures, decide to write a script on contemporary issues. The differences between them are enormous. Tricks abound. They stray from the plot, argue and start giving it shape as their lives constantly entwine with goings on at the Moliterno & Cie garage. Gigi and his cousin Jean-Do repair the cars that Lola then polishes and Marthe does the invoicing. Pépé teaches his grandson Italian rebel songs while Vanessa and Mouloud sell flowers and sea urchins at the market. Every member of the family puts their grain of sand, 12 hours a day, 7 hours a week, into getting by in these days of high unemployment. But globalisation raises its ugly head on the horizon when a multinational company threatens their survival.
