As summer approaches, everyone is itching for action in Boningville, a fictitious place resembling the projects surrounding Paris. Tony Pepperoni and Joe Hustleton had plans to spend the summer at the beach in Santo Rico, but a mix-up with the travel agency ruined their party dreams. Tony tries his luck in the ‘business’ with local honcho Zoran, while Joe lands a dream job working for the local judge and seduces his daughter Clémence. Things get complicated when Tony attempts to break up with his nymphomaniac girlfriend Manuella. Meanwhile, Joe wants to stop hustling but everyone in Boningville knows "where the party’s at". It features the voices of Vincent Cassel (Ocean’s Thirteen, Eastern Promises), Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds, Wicker Park), and French rapper Diam’s.
