Jean-Paul Rouve is Dagobert, a pathologically anxious industrial spy who just boarded a very cheap flight in Djerba, Tunisia. After eight long hours without air conditioning, the passengers are told that the plane is not going to take off. In a moment of bravado, intended to impress sexy airline stewardess Nuance(Judith Godrèche), Dagobert starts a mutiny. Among the passengers is Jean-Claude (Gérard Darmon, from Betty Blue and  Diva), a former airline pilot going through a deep depression. Although he is clearly unable to do the job, Jean-Claude cannot resist the call to action and the passengers vote to take control of the plane. A hilarious and irreverent comedy reminiscent of Airplane!
