A man's love for his jacket becomes a dark and dangerous obsession. Georges (Jean Dujardin), is a man who has one ambition - to possess the finest jacket in the world at the expense of all others. His relationship with his wife is in tatters, so Georges retreats to a remote town where he purchases the deerskin jacket of his dreams. Along with the 'stylish' jacket he has just acquired, he also gets hold of an old video camera which ignites a new interest as he moves from couture to auteur.

Aided by aspiring editor Denise (Adèle Haenel), he sets out to create his masterwork. However, his ever closer relationship with his deerskin jacket starts to take him down a darker path which he continues to document on his camera and which Denise continues to edit into a film.

Laugh out loud funny and gloriously unexpected, the odyssey on which Georges embarks leaves him guilty of many things, not least an excess of killer style...
