The European Union cannot be squeezed indefinitely, but other institutions can be squeezed as well. Mayor Jaques is convinced of this, trying to save the remote town of Bouchon somewhere in the interior of France from extinction by drawing all kinds of subsidies. Not even an inspection from Brussels, looking for embezzled millions, will prevent the realization of his plans. His closest collaborators, secretary Odetta and brother Nicolas, will stand by his side until the very end. An almost absurd farce by the most performed contemporary French comedy authors Jean Dell and Gérald Sibleyras, it was a great success with the Parisian audience at the time of its creation (2006). Long live Bouchon!
