Having been a caterer for over 30 years, Max has organised hundreds of parties and he’s even a bit over it.
Today it’s a magnificent wedding in a seventeenth century château, and Pierre and Helena are getting married. As usual, Max has coordinated everything: he’s hired his brigade of waiters, cooks, and dishwashers, advised the couple on a photographer, reserved the orchestra, arranged the floral decorations and so on. In short, all the ingredients have been brought together to ensure the celebration is a success. But as a series of unfortunate events begins to disrupt the finely-timed planning, each moment of happiness risks turning into a disaster.
