From the director of MARIUS ET JEANNETTE and featuring the same ensemble cast, comes this charming off-beat story with a twist. The employees of Molino's Garage rally against the power of a bank which wants to close them down because they're three months behind on the mortgage. Lola (Ariane Ascaride), who owns the garage and her loyal staff have to take matters into their own hands in order to keep the business going.

This is a humorous and irreverant film mingled with a touch of romance which, as in previous Robert Guediguian films, centres on the working class people of the Estaque region on Marseilles.
