A comedic romp through one man's life in the Loire Valley, FranceComedian, mod, and professional grump Ian Moore has had enough. Tired of being unable to park anywhere near his cramped house in a noisy town he doesn't like, he hatches a plan to move his wife and young son to a remote corner of the Loire Valley in search of serenity and space. Several years later, Ian finds himself up to his neck in bilingual offspring, feral cats, promiscuous horses, dysfunctional spaniels, and needy hens; he's wrestling with electric fences, a foreign language, a mountain of animal waste, and a wife who collects livestock like there's a biblical flood on the horizon, all while trying not to dirty his loafers. But despite the ups, downs, and increasing demands of Ian's showbiz career, the Moore family persevere to create a unique, colorful, and ultimately rewarding life in their new home--"a la campagne and a la mod"!
