Bon vivant philosophe et délinquant, Antonin trouve toujours le bon mot pour s’attirer un compliment ou un reproche. Marié, Antonin ne manque pas d’abuser de la bonté et de la patience de son épouse Églantine. Il déçoit aussi terriblement sa soeur Solveig. Occupé à fuir la perceptrice d’impôts Rose, qui voudrait bien lui mettre la main au collet, Antonin, ne peut s’enlever du crâne son attirance et son désir pour la belle Cassiopée. Tracassé, Antonin doit maintenant trouver la bonne combine et le bon mot d’excuse envers Aurore, l’une de ses victimes. Autour de ces cinq femmes, Antonin s’enlise.
Hedonistic philosopher-cum-delinquent, Antonin always finds the right word to win himself both the compliments and the rebukes of his fellows. A married man, Antonin never misses a chance to exploit both the goodness and the patience of his wife, Églantine. He is also a constant source of disappointment to his sister, Solveig. Busy trying to avoid Rose, the tax collector who is after his neck, Antonin cannot get his attraction and desire for the beautiful Cassiopée out of his skull. Tormented, Antonin must now devise the right scheme and the right words to apologize to Aurore, one of his victims. Between these five women, Antonin gets stuck.
