Synopsis

A pimp is dead.

Ron, the owner of a small escort agency, tries his best to be happy. But he discovers that his office has been broken into – and that valuable book of photos has been stolen – he wonders if it was Cheech, his archrival, who hired someone to plan and carry out this burglary.

Jenny, Ron’s most popular girl, assures him of her loyalty, but is flirting with the other clan. She makes a date with Cheech.

A depressed Olivier calls the agency after his neighbour Alexis highly recommends the agency. Ron sends him Stéphanie, who is on the verge of committing suicide.

Maxime, Ron’s new right hand, is secretly in love with Stéphanie and does everything in his power to help her and skillfully thwart Ron’s orders.

Cheech is a black comedy, a chaotic day in the life of six characters whose destinies cross unexpectedly. Their impossible quest for happiness will finish by revealing their secrets on this unusual day.

“Isn’t this a beautiful day?”
