On New Year’s Eve, two blonds, childhood best friends, Perrine and Lisa, hit a young man with their car while driving to a friend’s party. Not knowing what to do with the body, they take it back to Lisa’s apartment until they find a solution to get rid of it. In other word, take two blonds, a dead man walking and dancing, a goldfish found ‘belly up’, and you will end up with a recipe for disaster.
