In this witty and fast-paced short comedy, Claudine is driving her rattletrap of a car and pulling a camping trailer behind it on the way to spending a summer vacation with her boyfriend. The other passenger in her car is Henri, a boy she has little time for. He is her boyfriend's younger brother and is a non-stop complainer. Neither one of them can manage more than a few civil words with the other, and when the car breaks down on the road and they have to take refuge in the camper, it begins to look as though their near-feud will get worse. Instead, Henri begins to show some unsuspected qualities, such as a serious and abiding interest in using home video cameras to make decent films. Before long, they are joined by another stranded traveler, Titia, a local girl who is hiding from her now-rejected boyfriend.
