Alex finally gets a job allowing him to make a living and no longer lives with his father Charles. He’s about to work in a grand hotel. It’s not an easy leap to make when you’re allergic to working and have been a frequent hotel client, including this one. During a few days of internship, trying out different positions, from concierge to room service to night watch duty, Alex will pile up on the blunders. He will also take a shine on Manon, a funny little 10 year-old, who lives alone in her room, watched over by the hotel’s staff, and who keeps pranking everyone and getting away with it. The mystery surrounding her actually hides an uncanny drama: Manon is the hotel director’s daughter, currently away. She has unlimited budget but cannot leave the premises and see her divorced dad.
How good can it be to a rich kid if you can’t live a normal childhood? Alex knows he shouldn’t care for her, as it might cost him his job, but oh well, he can’t resist. He’ll try to offer a bit of friendship, a bit of happiness, a bit of danger… a bit of tenderness.
