Jean-Gabriel lives with his wife Suzy and three children on the outskirts of Paris. Despite his modest income, Jean-Gabriel still has money to buy drinks and bet on the horses. One day, he promises his daughter that he will take the whole family on a skiing holiday. Although Jean-Gabriel is clearly unable to afford such an excursion, his wife gives him an ultimatum - if he breaks his promise, she will leave him.
