PlotEdit

Honest garage mechanic, faithful husband and good father, Emile Dupuy was persuaded by the patter of a salesman at a bazaar to buy a cane fishing model with the money intended for his wife Charlotte's dream: a washing machine. Not daring to tell her, he will lie, small lies, wholesale lies, and finds himself in an inextricable situation.
