In Lyon, the paths of people from different social backgrounds cross, all of whom have something in common: a neurotic relationship with money. A stingy senior executive meets an expensive prostitute, who introduces him to the pleasure of frivolous spending. A generous restaurateur who is soon to be a father tries to avoid the baliff because he's on the verge of bankruptcy.

An inexperienced, awkward waitress is a wealthy heiress trying to hide her true identity. After a heart attack, an industrialist decides to sell all of his factories.
