Gaby operates Bouchard & Sons Farm, on which he raises sheep – but, instead of sons, Gaby has two daughters who he raised like princesses and who live far away in the big city. One day, the oldest asks for some financial support so as not to lose her home. Gaby, for whom fatherhood has evolved to the point of becoming unreasonable, decides to dismantle the farm.
