    • Synopsis
    • Recently paroled, sexy young con artist Céline is on the lookout for her next job. She thinks she’s found her victim in a Belgian Crown prince and his entourage, partying for free at a 5-star hotel in Paris. But Willy is just a guy, who got turned down for a job in this hotel… because he’s Belgian and French simply don’t take the Belgians seriously! So he and his two friends are getting their revenge. Seeing her chance, Céline threatens to unmask their imposture if they don’t help her steal a priceless jewel, during an A-list event at the hotel.
      To get past security, Willy and Céline will pose as a Belgian prince and princess, while Serge and his obsessive paramilitary buddy, Franck, pretend to be their bodyguards. An unlikely team of jewel thieves who can make even the most thought-out plan go haywire!
