Il est difficile de réaliser un bon film. Laurent Baffie l'a compris et emmène Daniel Russo dans une aventure ubuesque et décalée, à la recherche des clefs de bagnole qu'il a perdues. En réalité, ses clefs sont dans sa poche gauche, mais tout cela n'est qu'une allégorie de la vie, de l'amitié et de l'aventure. Une aventure dans laquelle Baffie joue son propre rôle, à la fois d'acteur, de réalisateur, de scénariste et de personnage.

Infuriated by belittlements, Queen Cleopatra makes a deal with Julius Caesar: if the Egyptians build a palace larger than Caesar's palace in Rome in three months, he must acknowledge that Egypt was the greatest of nations. To perform this task, Cleopatra hires the architect Numerobis, on pain of death and much to the dismay of Pyradonis, Cleoptara's customary architect. He and his secretary Papyris discuss the druid Getafix (Panoramix in the original French), whose potion empowers its drinkers; and Numerobis goes in search of him.
