Claude and Marie Verneuil married off their fourth daughter in the first film and successfully kept all their daughters and their families in France in the second. And just when they managed to convince them not to leave, they didn’t expect them all to end up in their picturesque Chinon, more or less always at each other’s throats. The daughters and their families want to repay them for their care and concern, taking advantage of the fact that Claude and Marie are celebrating forty years of life together. They begin to prepare a big celebration for them at their family home, and because it has to be a big celebration, they invite their parents to France as well. Claude and Marie will have to welcome the parents of their sons-in-law under their roof. This “family” reunion promises to be very eventful. Be surprised and above all entertained.
