Paris-set farce. The gay, teenage son of an opera diva - Thomas - answers a personal add and is witness to the murder of an older man. Unsure whether to call the police, Thomas blurts out the details to his psychiatrist Doctor Merci, unaware that the doctor has just expired from a heart attack and has been replaced by one of her patients, paranoid voiceover artist Penelope. Meanwhile Thomas' mother becomes convinced that her son has been kidnapped and sets off - assisted by her friend Claude - to pay the ransom.
