Everybody knows Ruben is Jewish, gay, a half-Finnish, half-French mailman, unworthy son, uncooperative brother, disappointing lover, shady killer and reluctant thief… Yet, Ruben is incapable of knowing who he is.

A gay French postman, Ruben, and his Finnish boyfriend, Teemu, split up when Ruben accidentally comes into a large sum of money and is forced to return to his eccentric Jewish family in France. Lost and lonely, hilarity ensues as Ruben tries to convince Teemu to take him back while dealing with incessant family meddling. A bit silly and broad, but has a certain charm in its loving lampoon of cultural stereotypes.
