Lorsque sa femme meurt, Alexandre décide de se consacrer à sa grande passion: la paresse. Il se couche pour plusieurs semaines. Son chien lui rapporte les provisions que lui sert la jolie Agathe, qui finit par le séduire. Mais, au moment de l'épouser, il se ravise, sa liberté et sa paresse risquant d'être compromises.
Philippe Noiret plays a henpecked childless farmer that lives oppressed by his authoritarian and materialistic wife, being the only worker in his farm. Whenever he attempts to take a small rest, indulge in any distraction, or simply falls asleep out of exhaustion, there she is chasing him to move on. When she and her elderly parents are killed in a car accident, he decides that the time has come to take it easy and enjoy life a little, sets all his livestock free, and then practically disappears. The only clue that he is still alive is his dog, who periodically goes shopping to the nearby town with a basket in its mouth. Concerns about Alexander's fate are the center of the town's gossip. After several attempts, a delegation sent by the citizens finds he has retired—to his bed. This creates no small social upheaval in this working-class small French town where hard work is regarded as a virtue, and hence his attitude is viewed as a scandal and a menace.
