Blanchard (Jean Yanne) is the colorless civil servant working for the French Culture Ministry. He works to support his nagging wife (Francoise Fabian) and their two children. He is called in on the carpet by his superior when a statistical report reflects his personal objection to growing censorship in France. He leaves home after his wife discovers his boss' secretary makes a play for her husband. When his children run away, Blanchard and his wife reunite to find the missing moppets and bring them home. For now, his plans to leave his wife and mistress for the secretary are temporarily put on hold.
