    • Synopsis
    • Everyone in the village of Bouzolles knows the Tuche family. Jeff, Cathy
      and their three children get by on the fringes of society.
      In keeping with the Tuche philosophy “Man is not made to work”, the
      whole family strives to be happy despite the lack of money. They know
      exactly what the future holds; they will be forever poor, but content.
      Then their hand-to-mouth existence is turned on its head.
      The Tuche get rich, and rich beyond their wildest dreams! They win 100
      million euros on the Euro-lottery that will change their lives forever.
      If you’re going to change your lifestyle, you may as well change location.
      And what better for the Tuche family than moving to Monaco, where
      Cathy has always dreamed of living?
      They need to fit in and be accepted in their swanky new homeland, which
      means changing their habits whilst staying true to themselves.
      It’s not going to be easy for this family who now have the Midas Tuche.
