Synopsis:
Violette, a 40-year old Parisian workaholic with a career in the fashion industry, falls for a country bumpkin computer geek from Biarritz, Jean-René, while on a spa holiday with her best friend, the promiscuous Ariane. Jean-René moves to Paris to be with Violette and meets her young adult son, Eloi, who still goes by the babyish name Lolo. Lolo is a self-professed artist, and his mother supports him utterly. He appears to welcome his mother's new love; but sets out to wreak havoc in their relationship.
Lolo, a moocher who requires his mother's universe to be centred on him, ups his game when nothing seems to break the couple's relationship. He plants a virus in Jean's newly coded software for a bank; running the software on the buyer's system infects their whole network, and Jean-René is arrested.
Jean-René warns Violette that all these mishaps are caused by Lolo and he has found evidence in Lolo's diary. Later, at Lolo's drab art exhibition Ariane's daughter reveals Lolo's string of efforts to sabotage Violette's love life, and Ariane tells Violette. Jean-René clears his name by fixing the trouble and gains tenure in his company.
Violette confronts Lolo with the facts, but Lolo tries to emotionally blackmail her. Violette finally cuts the emotional cord with Lolo and moves in with Jean-René. Lolo finds it hard to adjust to his new life without the presence of his mother. Later Violette realizes Jean-René might be facing the same issue with his daughter Sabine, as she did with her son.
