Five old friends. Jean is a romantic revolutionary, but does enjoy the benefits of a bourgeois lifestyle with his wife, Annie. Annie, a retired psychologist always complains about not being able to see her children and grandchildren enough. Albert is showing increasing signs of dementia; his energetic American wife Jeanne is a former university teacher who suffers from cancer but assures her husband that she is cured, yet shopping for a brightly-colored coffin. Widower Claude is an aging womanizer with an appetite for encounters with prostitutes. Knowing how lonely he is at home alone after a previous heart attack, Jean suggests that the five friends should be living together. Their dog walker Dirk, who is also writing his thesis on the condition of France's aging population, moves in with them as a caregiver.
