Eric je momak koji radije živi u gradu gdje otvoreno može iskazati svoju seksualnost, nego na selu iz kojeg je otišao sa majkom nakon osnovne škole.
Ne rado odlazi na selo da obiđe đeda na sedam dana, po majčinoj želji. Po dolasku se pokušava prilagoditi seoskom imidžu farmera. Đed ga sumljičavo gleda kao gradskog mekušca, dok farmer koji tu radi samo ćuti.
Medjutim stvari se rapidno mjenjaju kada njegovi prijatelji nenajavljeno dođu u posjetu.
Erik is used to living the city life where he can express his sexuality openly. However he’s sent to stay with his grandfather, with a couple of his camp friends tagging along. Erik’s granddad doesn’t seem impressed with his ‘soft’ grandson, and merely look at his friends with bemusement. However as time passes both sides show that by opening up there’s more to both of them than meets the eye. While a little bit silly at times and occasionally needlessly oblique (but then, it is French), it can’t hide the film’s relatively simple but strong central message. There is a slight condescension towards rural people though, that the film unfortunately never really deals with.
