Le lycée Jules-Ferry n'affiche que 12 % de réussite au baccalauréat, ce qui fait de lui le pire lycée de France. L'inspecteur d'académie propose alors au proviseur d'engager les pires professeurs, en espérant que, paradoxalement, cela permettra au lycée de dépasser les 50 % de réussite ; faute de quoi, le lycée sera fermé. Sont alors engagés sept professeurs aux méthodes atypiques : Serge Cutiro (surnommé Tirocu par les élèves), un professeur dont on ne sait pas au départ la matière qu'il enseigne (juste excellent en maths, qui sera sa matière où il enseignera dans la suite) très fainéant, déclarant par exemple : « Aujourd'hui, on invente un exercice, on le fait, on le corrige, tout seul et en silence, hop c'est parti ! » ; Gladys, une professeur d'anglais tyrannique adepte du lancer de craie ; Albert, professeur de chimie féru d'expériences dangereuses et bizarres qui finissent la plupart du temps en explosion ; Amina, professeur de français aux courbes affriolantes ; Éric, professeur d’EPS adepte des exercices dangereux ; Maurice, professeur de philosophie québécois totalement incompréhensible (sauf quand il est sous l'emprise de l'alcool) ; et Antoine Polochon, professeur d'histoire idolâtrant Napoléon, et n'ayant jamais passé le CAPES.

The film follows Maxime Nathan and his Jewish family in France during the years leading up to World War II. François Grimbert (played as a young boy by Valentin Vigourt and as an adolescent by Mathieu Amalric) grows up in Paris in the 1950s. He is the skinny, sickly son of two marvelously athletic parents, Tania (Cécile de France) and Maxime (Patrick Bruel). For a while, he dreams of a stronger, fitter, more charismatic older brother to compensate for his own feelings of inadequacy. Only gradually does he learn of his parents' tragic past and that he has a sibling — a half-brother named Simon, his father's first son.

The opening of the film shows us a montage of Adolf Hitler's life from the years 1899-1907. The 10-year old Hitler (Thomas Sangster) is shown to be arrogant and disobedient. He has a stern, ill-tempered father, Alois Hitler (Ian Hogg), and a doting mother, Klara Hitler (Stockard Channing), who indulges his dreams of becoming a great artist. One day, his father dies of a heart attack but the young Hitler shows no empathy or concern. Seven years later, a 17-year old Hitler (Simon Sullivan) applies unsuccessfully to the Vienna Arts Academy but is told he lacks the talent to become an artist. Following his mother’s death, he moves to Vienna permanently but is unable to find work and soon becomes destitute and homeless. Influenced by the city’s prevalent anti-semitism, young Hitler becomes convinced that the Jews and immigrants are to blame for his misfortunes.

Héléna Bourdelle, called "The Bourdelle," is a great singer and wife of maestro André Bourdelle. Joining the Resistance, he is killed by the accidental explosion of a grenade. Following the defeat, the family's mansion is taken over by German forces, leaving the family occupying a few back rooms, complaining to the Kommandantur about his excesses and those of his men. Bourdelle, her daughters and their tenant help by chance an English soldier to escape and are then forced to hide him. The family, whose former caretaker Ramirez has become a Gestapo agent, is favoured by the General Spontz who has a soft spot for Bernadette Bourdelle. He is willing to ignore the fact that Guy-Hubert, son of the family, a seemingly cowardly and effeminate hairdresser, is actually the elusive vigilante known as "Super-Resistant".
