What would yellow-press reporter Ludo do without women? He needs the famous ones for his dirt-digging stories, and the less famous ones for his legendary one-night stands. Blessed with virile bravado and unshakable self-confidence, Ludo usually gets the interviews he wants and the sexiest girls as well. All goes well until he lands in big trouble – and bare-assed – in the midst of a celebrity party and is sentenced to 300 hours of social work in a pre-school nursery. Expecting it to be child's play, Ludo is in for a big surprise when he discovers that the place is run by Anna, whom he enjoyed making malicious fun of in their primary-school days. Back then, Anna was shy, awkward and wore big eyeglasses. Ditto today. Except that now she's ready to take revenge. Mercilessly. Resolutely. Adorably... Whether he's criticized for not sewing ears on his toy rabbits or made to look ridiculous as a clown's helper, Ludo has to go along with the torture. But at some point he begins to like it. He likes tying kids' shoelaces and telling them spooky stories. And he likes being picked on by Anna, who cannot hide the fact that she has fallen in love with him and is hoping the 300 hours will never end...
