After a tragic incident, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), moves from their native India to make a fresh start in a safer place. Their van breaks down just outside the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. They're rescued by Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), who takes them in and gives them an exquisite meal.

However, Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), the chilly owner of a Michelin-starred French restaurant, objects to the existence of a new restaurant 100 feet from her own.
