Agathe Villanova (Jaoui) is a self-centered, workaholic feminist politician who, upon reluctantly returning to her home in the south of France to sort out her mother's affairs, runs for an local election. Upon her arrival, Agathe grudgingly agrees to take part in a documentary being made by the blundering duo of Karim (Jamel Debbouze, "Amelie") an aspiring filmmaker, and self-professed "reporter" Michel (Jaoui's regular writing partner Jean-Pierre Bacri), on the subject of “successful women." As Agathe's life hilariously unravels, the camera is there to capture it all.
