Lucien Tournier has served in the merchant marine for more than thirty-five years as chief technician. At almost sixty years old he finds out he has a colon cancer. He immediately wants to visit his children, a boy and two girls. They’re older now and he only saw them a few times over the years. Today they almost are strangers to him. So he wants to spend time with them and maybe learn to love them. It is the story of the funny journey a father makes to catch up with his children.
