"At 73, France's ex-president, Emile Beaufort, faces declining health, but he still plays a vigorous role behind the scenes as a philosopher and, potentially, as a power broker. In particular, his relationship with Philippe Chalamont comes into play: Chalamont seems in line to be the next Prime Minister, and Beaufort's history with him is long, deep, and problematic. As Beaufort dictates his memoirs, his narrative take us to occasions, 15 and 20 years before, in which Chalamont and he clashed. Chalamont is not without talent and guile: he comes directly to Beaufort to see if they can sort things out."--IMDb

There is just one snag, however. The five identical sons left the area twenty years ago, having fallen out with their father - the irascible viticulturist Edouard Saint-Forget - and no one knows their present whereabouts. By chance, the quintuplets' godfather, Dr Bolène, comes across a newspaper article which reveals that one of the sons, Alain, has become a famous Parisian beautician. With no time to lose, Dr Bolène sets out to find Alain and, through him, discover the location of the other four sons, Bernard, Charles, Désiré and Etienne.
