Five years after their year together in Barcelona, the exuberant inhabitants of L'auberge espagnole (Pot Luck, 2002) reunite for a Russian wedding. With their carefree student days behind them, they are close to 30 and facing career and relationship issues yet remain young at heart. Xavier is now thirty years old. He has realised his childhood dream, has become a writer, but he still seems a little lost. Earning a living by writing is not so easy and he has problems with his banker too. Xavier has also problems settling down with a girl -he has one meaningless romantic encounter after another. He lines up a confusing, pell-mell series of jobs relating to writing - he's a journalist, a ghost-writer, a soap-opera writer or a screenwriter for junk TV series.
