When Vincent (Aurélien Recoing) is fired from his job, he cannot bring himself to tell his wife (Karin Viard) and son. Rather than reveal the truth, he spins a web of lies to conceal his situation. With his father's help, he rents an apartment in nearby Geneva and claims he's been hired by the United Nations. He escalates his lies further when he creates an investment scheme and asks friends to contribute. His deception soon threatens to overwhelm his life and his family.
