Our adorable daughter-in-law

People are often very nervous about meeting their parents-in-law for the first time. But what if it were parents who should fear their daughters-in-law ?

Jacques, patriarch of the family who has been married to Martine for 40 years, has his life turned upside-douwn when his three daughters-in-law arrive on the scene. He makes every effort to try to soften his forceful character and avoid upsets but it soon becomes clear that his fiery temperament is incompatible with that of his daughters-in-law - who are every bit as unbearable as he is...

Plunge into family dinners that are horribly true to life and where Jacques will gradually lose control of his family to his daughters-in-law, who are determined to impose their rules. 

For better and for worse - but above all for our great entertainment !
