Three crises-pre-adolescent angst, a 20-something breakup, and an ill-advised attempt at a midlife career change-bedevil a father and his two sons.

Joseph and his two sons, Joachim and Ivan, form a close-knit family but fail to see that each one is losing control of his life. Joachim is supposed to be studying psychiatry but spends most of his time daydreaming about his ex-girlfriend; Ivan cannot fit in at school despite being very smart; and Joseph has secretly quit his job as a doctor and is trying to become a writer. While there is plenty of affection at home, all three are also, clumsily, searching for love.
