Bertrand (Fabrice Luchini), a middle-aged lawyer, is sent to Monaco to defend an old woman (Stéphane Audran) who murdered a man with ties to the mob. Against his will, Bertrand is assigned a bodyguard named Christophe (Roschdy Zem).

Their relationship becomes especially strained when Bertrand meets Audrey (Louise Bourgoin), a beautiful local weather girl and Christophe’s ex-girlfriend. Audrey seduces Bertrand, occupying all his time and, according to Christophe, distracting him from the trial.
