Life will suddenly change for Bernard when his friend Couscous convinces him to take part in the next Night of the Look-Alikes organised by the French TV. Both have only 4 weeks to hire and train the four dancers who always accompanied the real Claude François. While Bernard has quit his job in order to present a few shows in little French towns before the big night, his wife Véro decides to leave him for good.
