Synopsis / Plot
Paul has finally managed to buy the hotel that he has always dreamed of owning but he's also taken out an awful lot of loans to cover the costs of renovating it. Even if all goes well, it will take a long time before he manages to get out of debt. Thankfully, he's happily married to one of the prettiest women of the Périgord, Nelly, who helps him to run the hotel. But as years go by, Paul is starting to find himself to be an inadequate husband for Nelly - and Nelly seems to be all too eager to please the hotel's male clientèle... Is she being unfaithful to him or is he just over-stressed with the mountain of work that is constantly tumbling on top of him? With the financial situation getting more and more precarious by the month and fuelled by a chronic jealousy, Paul finds his life becoming a living hell...
