Synopsis

French comedy in which a family are moved to openly discuss their sex lives in a bid to help the frustrated adolescent in their midst. Romain (Mathias Melloul) remains a virgin at the age of 18, a state of affairs that contributes to his decision to masturbate in class, earning him a severe reprimand from the school and bringing his sexual frustration to the attention of his mother, Claire (Valérie Maës). Claire decides that she hasn't been open enough with her son and invites the family to share stories of their sexual experiences with the boy. Some of the revelations are startling, such as his grandfather (Yan Brian)'s confession that he has visited a prostitute since his wife's death, but ultimately begin to lead Romain towards a greater understanding of his own desires and how to act on them.
