When Paul decides to give up his boring but steady office job as a banker, this does not go down well with his children. Their dad wants to pursue his dream and become an actor. Is it a burnout? A midlife crisis? When his ambitious wife Véronique comes home from yet another business trip and hears the news, there’s no telling where it will stop. The Schutijzers are a pleasantly disturbed family, but this is going a few bridges too far. According to Véronique, Paul must come to his senses. His youngest daughter Zoë is the only one who believes in her father. She encourages him and joins him in his adventure. What at first seems to be a ridiculous plan, doomed to fail and threatening to tear the whole Schutijzer family apart, ends up being a funny, exciting and moving journey that awakens and enchants the whole family.
