Just retired, Serge Pilardosse (Gérard Depardieu) is bored. He decides to go to the Super U supermarket in Rouillac, where his wife (Yolande Moreau) works.

During his shopping, we discover Serge’s “je-m en-foutiste” personality who ignores a man who has had a breakdown and forces his way with his cart between two cars in the parking lot. On the other hand, we discover his real love for his former job as a pig butcher during a somewhat heated exchange with the supermarket butcher (Gustave Kervern).

Originally, Yolande Moreau had refused the role. Gérard Depardieu then called her and said: “I’m happy, you’re doing the film with me. ” Not having the courage to tell him otherwise, she accepted the role.
