Une endoscopie gastrique les fait se rencontrer chez l'éminent professeur Lerner. Son assistante, le docteur Nitez, reconnaît en Benoît un amant qui l'a autrefois bafouée. Par vengeance amoureuse — et curiosité scientifique — elle intervertit les résultats de la biopsie, faisant croire à Benoît qu'il a un cancer et laissant ignorer à Fabio le mal qui le ronge. Une amitié se forge entre les deux hommes, chacun découvrant à travers l'autre un mode d'emploi pour sa propre vie. Parallèlement, une "veuve noire" très distinguée cherche de riches veufs éplorés, deux adolescents qui se sont croisés aux sports d'hiver tentent de se retrouver, et un SDF à la voix d'or va vivre un conte de fées.
