Overview

When Alfred becomes an ambassador in Paris, his wife Fanny will be put in charge of managing the embassy’s day-to-day. Suddenly she’ll find herself rubbing shoulders with the Parisian aristocracy, hosting cocktails and dinners, and bewildered by the way in which the most menial details of her life make their way into the papers. On top of it all, she will have to mediate emotional situations among her friends and guide her indomitable sons, whose modern lifestyles she just can’t seem to understand. Furthermore, it seems as though a diplomatic crisis is about to erupt, making it clear that life in an embassy is anything but boring.

Cuando Alfred es nombrado embajador en París, su esposa Fanny se convertirá en la encargada de manejar los asuntos cotidianos de la embajada. De repente se verá alternando con la aristocracia y lo más granado de la sociedad parisina, dando cócteles y cenas, y contemplando asombrada cómo cada nimio detalle de su vida es aireado en los periódicos. Por si fuera poco, tendrá que mediar en los asuntos sentimentales de sus amigos y encauzar a sus indómitos hijos, cuyos modernos estilos de vida no termina de comprender. Además, parece que una crisis diplomática está a punto de estallar, dejando claro que la vida en una embajada es todo excepto aburrida.
