Pierre, a divorced teacher, has two kids: Victor, 14, and Tom, 9, whom he sees once a week and every other weekend. Jeanne, a real estate agent, raises Camille, 12 and Paul, 9, all by herself. By chance, Pierre and Jeanne meet, fall in love and after a few months they decide to move in together, kids included.

However, tensions mount from the very first day. Aside from the pressure from Paul's ex, who is not happy with the new arrangement, the children themselves have a hard time accepting this forced sharing of space. They start creating problems and quickly divide the lovers.

As Pierre and Jeanne don't see eye to eye when it comes to discipline, they start to wonder if they've made a serious mistake.
