Done as a parody of reality television shows such as MTV's Real World, this faux docudrama from France also pokes fun at the foibles of modern day monogamy as it spends a year in the life of one young Parisian couple. Delphine works as a proofreader in a publishing house, her live-in lover Yvan works as a tour guide for Japanese visitors. A documentary crew moves in with them to record their every move for the next year. As events progress, two famed sportscasters appear to offer their expert commentary and present instant-replays of highlights including an awkward dinner party at a friend's home, a miserable vacation and Yvan's drunken lapse in judgment with a beautiful stranger, a mistake that costs him Delphine, leaving him to try to dejectedly try to figure out ways to get her back.
