Allergies can make life hell, as the eleven-year-old Gilbert knows. Eggs are the culprit in his case, so to avoid danger he has devised a number of tactics. However, birthday parties such as that of his neighbour Line remain a challenge – especially when you want to impress this girl and become the new goalie of her ice hockey team. And as if that wasn’t difficult enough, Gilbert also has to battle his incredibly strange aunt Doris. She is supposed to look after him while his parents are away, but instead she becomes his worst enemy. A hilariously wacky film with a charming and charismatic protagonist.
