A sequel to Belgian cartoonist-turned-director Jan Bucquoy's successful sex comedy The Sexual Life of the Belgians, this erotic romp with elements of political and social satire is set at the title resort, a run-down low-key vacation spot for the working class. Set during the summer of 1986, the tale begins as the Ministry of Culture, anxious to give the campers a healthy dose of culture at the hands of a group of self-importance leftist intellectual artists. The vacationers are less than interested by the pompous productions offered by the cultural experts, finding their own lives, which are shown episodically throughout, more interesting. Some of the characters include the camp manager's overly-uddered wife, a hooker, an a would-be pedophile with a thing for a blow-up rubber woman. Bucquoy is also at the camp with his 13-year-old daughter. In a sentimental turn, he attempts to help her come to grips with a traumatic event from her past.
