The film tells the story of a family of cunning peasants, the Goupi. Father Goupi brings his son back home from Paris, where he's supposed to have become an important man and done well financially, with the intention of marrying him to his cousin. But the jealousy of "Tonkin", another of his cousins, facing this newcomer from the city, will make the night of his arrival one of unrest and unexplained crimes that will sow panic and doubt within the family.

Le film raconte l'histoire d'une famille charentaise de paysans rusés, les Goupi.

Mais la jalousie de « Tonkin », un autre de ses cousins, face à ce nouveau venu citadin, fera de la nuit de son arrivée une nuit d'agitation et de crimes inexpliqués qui sèmeront la panique et le doute au sein de la famille.
