Copacabana (France, Belgium)
The misadventures of Babou, an idle and jovial woman who has never been concerned about social success. She nevertheless decides to get back on the right track when she discovers that her daughter is too ashamed to invite her to her wedding. Feeling deeply hurt as a mother, Babou decides to sell time-share apartments in Ostend, in mid-winter. In the strange atmosphere of this coastal resort, she could be tempted to take life easy, but she sticks at it in order to win back her daughter’s respect and offer her a decent wedding gift.
