For 22 years, secretary Léo Huff has worked in the same office, lived with the same woman, in the same little bungalow, amidst the same furniture that has never been rearranged. One day, all of that is blown to smithereens.

Leo is asked to represent an engineer at a project presentation out of town. While he’s there, he helps out a young woman in trouble who urges him to step off the beaten path. For Leo, this is the beginning of a new life, a life that’s chaotic, strange, explosive and full of the unexpected. Who knew what was dormant inside this little office worker? No one. Not even Leo. Especially not Leo.
