Synopsis

When François a humble restaurant car service valet at a posh Paris is inadvertantly photographed by a paparazzo leaving the hotel--along with the wealthy tycoon, Pierre, and his beautiful supermodel mistress Elena--he gets caught-up in a billionaire industrialist's sneaky infidelities. In a desperate attempt to avoid an ugly divorce with his wife Christine, Pierre's scheming lawyer concocts an outrageous plan. By paying the valet a large sum of money to live with Pierre's mistress, the two men hope to mislead the tabloids and most importantly hide the affair from his wife. Meanwhile the ruthless Pierre must convince the stunning Elena to live with François in his cruddy apartment until the dust settles. All the while, continuing to reassure his wife that the other man in the photo, François, is really Elena's boyfriend.
