Gérard is an engineer who is married to Gabrielle and has a nine-month-old son, for whom he cares deeply. When his wife leaves him for feminist reasons, he is left with custody of their son. To satisfy his romantic longings, Gerard embarks on an affair with Valérie, his son''s daycare worker. However, Gabrielle fights for custody of the child, and when Gérard''s affair with Valérie threatens his custody chances, Gérard responds by mutilating himself.

This otherwise straightforward movie that chronicles the conflict between a man''s romantic urges and the feminist ideal and a custody battle over the man''s young son has a cataclysmic ending which is not for the fainthearted. In the story, Gerard (Gerard Depardieu) is an engineer who has just been left by his wife (Zouzou) for feminist reasons and has custody of his nine-month old son, whom he cares for deeply. When his next romance with Valerie (Ornella Muti), his son''s daycare worker, threatens that custody, he responds by mutilating himself drastically
