Tanguy is 28 years old and still lives at his parents' home. Sabine Azéma and André Dussollier have tried for years now to persuade their son that it was time to leave home but Tanguy doesn't see why he should move. After countless visits to her psychiatrist, Sabine confesses to André that she can't stand their son anymore. Both will then try by all possible means to move Tanguy off into an apartment but the young man doesn't mind his parents's hilarious attempts to drive him out of the flat.
