How great to be a grown-up who can afford everything without any of the problems and hang-ups: Wolfi is in his mid-40s, and wants to revisit the good old days with his three best buddies in the Provence, where life is good. Little does he realizes his old chums are in the middle of growing up for real, bringing their wives and kids, and all their everyday family problems, too.
