« A diverting tale of pre-middle-aged floundering that can’t stop pointing out how unexpected everything is. » – Washington Post

Film synopsis:

Xavier is now forty years old.

We find him with Wendy, Isabelle and Martine fifteen years after L’Auberge Espagnole and ten years after Russian Dolls.

Xavier’s life has not necessarily settled down and everything even seems more and more complicated. Although now a father of two children, he still has the travel bug and this time it leads him to the heart of Chinatown in New York. In joyful mayhem, he tries to find his place as a father and as a son… and as a man!

Separation. Building a new family. Homosexual parents. Immigration. Illegal workers. Globalization. Xavier’s life is a genuine Chinese puzzle. A life in New York and the current period, which, although might not be calm or coherent, at least give Xavier plenty to write about.
