Englishman Paul West is living the Parisian dream, and doing his best not to annoy the French. But recently things have been going trés wrong:

And Paul's gorgeous ex-girlfriend seems to be stalking him.
Threatened with eviction, unemployment and bankrupcy, Paul realises that his personal merde factor is about to hit the fan...
