Paul-André has many prized possessions: a sumptuous mansion, the hottest car in town, a butler at his service. However, he is extremely lonely and lacking something essential in his life. This disillusioned businessman decides to "test out" family life, like he would a new restaurant in town. He goes on to make a crazy proposition to Violette, a single mother of two, filled with life but struggling to make ends meet: in exchange for contractually renting out her family and living with them for 3 months, Paul-André will pay off all her debts. He will finally be able to test out the true joy of family life...for better or worse!
