Clement loves his books. And the opposite sex. With his good looks and erudition, the lecturer in philosophy from Paris has women in the palm of his hand. And nothing changes when he is transferred to the small Northern town of Arras: on his arrival, he meets Jennifer and begins a passionate affair. But the bubbly, dyed blonde hairdresser is unlike any of the women Clement has known before. She loves karaoke and idolizes Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston. A reader of Proust and a beauty from the provinces in a trenchant social comedy.
