Ivan is a work-aholic who is trying his best to juggle all the responsibilities of running a small woodworking business. His wife Nathalie has grown tired of his eighteen hour days and has decided to run off with their teenage son, Christophe, and live with Sami, a local gym teacher. Soon after, the woodshop goes up in flames and Ivan learns that his unsavory insurance broker has been pocketing his premiums. Now his back is against the wall, and unless he can enlist his wife, her new suitor, and his son in a scam to backdate his insurance policy, he is ruined.
