Bernard Frédéric leaves behind his job as a Claude François look-alike to please his wife Véro, who wants a normal life. Now a bored bank employee, Bernard learns of a new look-alike contest organized by a tv station. Here is a chance for Bernard to recapture the fame he so misses. His wife gives him an ultimatum: give up, or she'll divorce him. His ex-collaborator and number one fan, Jean-Baptiste Rousseau, pushes him towards his dream. Torn between his boring day-to-day life and his dreams of glory, and between his love for his wife and his love for his idol, Bernard decides to risk everything and go for it.

Beyond the obvious homage to singer Claude François and a fond look at '70s pop culture, the movie examines friendship, love and celebrity-seekers.
