At 50, Jean-Louis Broustal is a television producer with everything. A successful career, a beautiful wife and weath to spare. Not only that, his latest show, Send the Handkerchiefs, hosted by the famous Philippe Letzger, is breaking records in the ratings. Bastien, who warms up the studio audience before each show, knows he could do better.
But he lets himself be humiliated by Letzger so he can have the opportunity to ingratiate himself with his idol, Jean-Louis Broustal. When his boss invites him to his country estate for a weekend to work on a concept that Bastien has come up with for a new show, The Proof in Pictures, it seems that his dreams are finally coming true.
But when the ambitious young man discovers the true intentions of Broustal and his wife Clara, the consequences prove to be disastrous.
