Five long-time friends, now past retirement age, decide to move in together. Under the watchful eyes of their younger caretaker, an anthropology student, the new housemates confront some hidden issues from their shared past while struggling to cope with the problems of ageing. One day, one of the five friends suggests to say no to isolation and loneliness: what if they lived together?
Jean (Bedos) is a romantic revolutionary, yet enjoys the spoils of a bourgeois lifestyle with his wife, Annie (Chaplin). Annie, a retired psychiatrist, who complains about not being able to see enough of her children and assorted grandchildren. Albert (Richard), is a friendly yet senile man, this is in contrast with his energetic American wife Jeanne (Fonda). Jeanne's a former university lecturer, who is suffering from cancer.
Widower Claude (Rich) is an aging womanizer with an appetite for pursuits with prostitutes. Claude suffers a heart attack from walking up too many flights of stairs up, on the way to visiting one of his lady friends. Rather than seeing him in a retirement home, his friends decide they should all live together in Annie and Jean's large home. They are joined by Dirk, a young German ethnology student, researching France's aging population.
