Yvan, a sportswriter, is happily married to Charlotte, a famous actress. Although he doesn’t take his wife’s occupation seriously, he finds it difficult to share her with thousands of fans. Especially when some of them stop her on the street or interrupt them while they’re having a meal to ask for her autograph. His ego is threatened by her fame, such as when he is unable to get a reservation at a restaurant and yet, moments later, when she calls, a table is miraculously available for her. One day, he meets a man in a bar who asks Yvan if it bothers him to watch his wife make love in the nude on screen to other men. He begins to be bothered by it and his jealously comes out when Charlotte flies to London to do a film with an English actor who is known for seducing his leading ladies.
