Synopsis
A 40-year-old divorced father of two cannot cope with his children moving to New York with their mother, so he moves there to be close to them. Xavier's life is not necessarily all in order. In fact, things seem to be growing more and more complicated. While a new father of two children, his travel bug sends him this time to New York, right to the middle of Chinatown. Within a joyous mess, Xavier tries to find his place here as a son, as a father...in fact, as a man.
