Tandis que leur père a annoncé qu'il quittait la maison, et que leur mère en recherche d'emploi a accepté un stage à Montréal, Léa, Adrien et leur petit frère Théo, sourd de naissance, partent en vacances en dernière minute en Provence chez leur grand-père Paul qu'ils n'ont jamais rencontré. En effet, Paul et sa fille sont brouillés depuis 17 ans, et il n'a jamais été rendre visite à ses petits enfants. C'est leur grand-mère, Irène, épouse de Paul, qui les emmène sans prévenir ce dernier. Dès leur installation, le choc des générations se fait ressentir entre ces ados citadins et connectés, et ce grand-père de prime abord psychorigide et arriéré. Au fil du temps, les petits-enfants découvriront chez leur grand-père, que derrière ce personnage bourru se cache une personne pleine de surprises, ancien hippie et motard ayant parcouru le monde entier avant de se retirer et de cultiver des oliviers. Les vacances ne s'annonceront pas si désastreuses que cela, entre les moments en famille et les rencontres et premières amourettes au village, le pizzaiolo pour la jeune fille, les belles touristes suédoises pour le plus grand. Quant au tout petit, il n'aura d'yeux que pour son grand-père, et ce malgré ses fêlures et son net penchant pour l'alcool.

The movie starts off with a man, named Schlomo (Lionel Abelanski), running crazily through a forest, with his voice playing in the background, saying that he has seen the horror of the Nazis in a nearby town, and he must tell the others. Once he gets into town, he informs the rabbi, and together they run through the town and once they have got enough people together, they hold a town meeting. At first, many of the men do not believe the horrors they are being told, and many criticize Schlomo, for he is the town lunatic, and who could possibly believe him? But the rabbi believes him, and then they try to tackle the problem of the coming terrors. Amidst the pondering and the arguing, Schlomo suggests that they build a train, so they can escape by deporting themselves. Some of their members pretend to be Nazis in order to ostensibly transport them to a concentration camp, when in reality, they are going to Palestine via Russia. Thus the Train of Life is born.

Paris, January 1942. France is occupied by the Nazis. Robert Klein, apparently apolitical, is a well-to-do art dealer, Roman Catholic and Alsatian by birth, who takes advantage of French Jews who need to sell artworks to raise cash to leave the country. One day, the local Jewish newspaper, addressed to him, is delivered to his home. He learns that another Robert Klein who has been living in Paris, a Jew sought by the police, has had his mail forwarded to him in an apparent attempt to destroy his social reputation and make him a target of official anti-Semitism. He reports this to the police who remain suspicious that he may be reporting this scheme to disguise his own true identity. His own investigations lead him in contradictory directions, to Klein who lives in a slum while having an affair with his concierge and to Klein who visits a palatial country estate where he has seduced an apparently Jewish married woman. When the art dealer cannot locate the other Klein, authorities require him to offer proof of his French heritage. While waiting for the documentation to arrive, he struggles to track down his namesake and learn his motivation. Before he can resolve the situation by either means, he is caught up in the July 1942 roundup of Parisian Jews. He is reunited with Jews who once were his clients as they board boxcars for Germany.
