Romain (Philippe Catherine) works as a caregiver in a psychiatric hospital, watching a very strange patient Leo (Dany Boon). He claims he is a high-profile international spy going by the name of Agent Lion, but you would not believe an insane man, would you? Even when Leo tells Romain that someone is spying on his girlfriend, he does not believe a word of that delirious nonsense. Everything changes when someone kidnaps the girl. Romain has no choice but to turn to Agent Lion for help and let him escape, hoping he will bring his fiancée back. The escape triggers a chain of crazy events, both literally and metaphorically.
This is a classic French comedy full of facetious characters and funny jokes.
