A kind of mockumentary within the mockumentary. Fake with a hidden meaning that is also fake. In this genre, the important thing is that it looks real - and it does. A Taiwanese family in Taipei is caught off-guard by a French TV crew. Would they like to allow themselves to be filmed for a whole weekend for a reality TV show? They object at first, but a possible reward tempts them. In addition, they have a son studying in France and would then have an opportunity to see him. The journalist Pierre becomes strikingly friendly and seems to know a lot about their son. The family soon forgets that the whole world is looking in. And at first they only reveal small secrets...
