Paolo (Vincenzo Amato), an Italian who drives a tour bus in Paris, explaining to his passengers that
Paris is a second-rate Rome, has just proposed to the love of his life, Greta (Nora Tschirner), the very
German stewardess with whom he is living, when an attractive young French woman, Cécile (Louise
Monot) pulls up beside his bus on her bicycle – again and again.
Aware that Paolo is unable to get the vision of this lovely woman from his mind, his friend, the witty
womanizing Brit, Derek (Paddy Considine) advises him to meet the distracting beauty, since no woman
can live up to the fantasy he has of her. In his bumbling attempt to meet Cécile, Paolo finds himself with a French “wife”, two Australian children who call him “Papa”, and the aforementioned German stewardess with wedding plans and a growing suspicion that Paolo’s sudden absences from early morning to late night indicate the traditional Italian tendency to have something going on the side.
As Paolo’s life spins out of control, Greta, on the advice of her colleague, the airline pilot François
(Stéphane Debac), decides to follow Paolo and find out what exactly he’s up to.
