Mr. Hulot is a member of the working class, currently jobless, living in an apartment in the old part of Paris. Since he has a lot of time on his hands, every day he accompanies his nephew Gérard to school and back to the boy’s house where he lives with his mother, Hulot’s sister, and her husband Mr. Arpel, the owner of a plastics factory. They belong to a higher class and love to flaunt their wealth by filling their minimalist-designed home with fancy equipment.
