Fifteen years after they were first brought together by their dead mother, Didier, Bernard and Pascal are once again reunited, this time to learn that their mother has left them a mountain of debts to clear. In the intervening time things have not improved for any of the half-brothers. Bernard now lives in a caravan and scrapes a living as an actor. Didier supplements his income as a teacher by selling sextoys by post. Pascal survives by bleeding his sugar mummy. The news that they have inherited a massive debt does not go down well. With the help of Bernard's daughter Sarah the brothers try to improve their financial position via a spot of improvised drugs dealing. It turns out not to be the best of career moves...
