Francis is a man whose home life mirrors the troubles he is having at work. His wife and daughter are planning to spend all of his money on an extravagant wedding, while his work-force are in rebellion. He needs a way out of his complicated life and he thinks he finds it when he sees a woman on television deliver an impassioned plea for her husband to return. He realises that he looks uncannily like the missing husband, so he steps into the new family, hoping they will give him the peace he craves. Unfortunately, everything is not as idyllic as it seems. Eric Cantona makes his big screen debut as one of the supporting characters.
