Relations between Heléne and the gardener, Julien, are understandably a bit cool. After all, she had sacked him without pay, so the task of wooing him back is all the more complicated. Heléne sets off to Brittany to find him but he cannot be enticed, until that is Heléne commits a dastardly deed that makes it very difficult for Julien not to take the considerable amount of money on offer.
This is, of course, a comedy, and as such it succeeds. Ice cool Heléne starts to warm to Julien, a clear case of opposites etc. etc.! Meanwhile Alicia gets her mojo back and everything in the garden is hunky dory - well almost. And there are quite a few laughs along the way.
