Jos (David Boutin, La Grande séduction) is dead. His friends and family find themselves welcoming in the New Year in a Montréal funeral home, amidst tears and not a little bit of laughter. Jos has left a colourful clan in mourning: his ex-wife Blanche (Ginette Reno, Mambo italiano) and her four sisters, a hysterical niece, an alcoholic best friend, etc. And also his daughter Jeanne (Céline Bonnier, La Face cachée de la lune), who still recalls the bitter final years of her parents’ marriage. Friends and family alike offer their often episodic condolences, and from their remembrances a new image of Jos emerges.
