Synopsis by Dan Pavlides

This situation comedy finds a married couple from Paris longing for the bucolic existence of a simple country life. The father (Jean Richard) is talked into the move by his wife (Danielle Darrieux), who believes the move will enhance their social status. After they decide to buy and old mill, they spend a small fortune trying to make improvements to the aging structure. They even sell their Paris apartment to finance the renovation, only to feel isolated in the quiet of the country. The building of the dream house turns into a nightmare as both soon long to return to life in the city.
