Plot summary: After World War I Ugolin Soubeyran [Daniel Auteuil] returns to his village in Provence after completing his military service and greets his uncle Cesar [Yves Montand], then embarks on a project growing carnations further up in the mountains, believing this crop will generate a good income for him at the local market. A big problem arises when Ugolin and Papet decide to try to expand the project by buying the property of a local farmer named Pique-Boufigue, who does not want to sell. Pique-Boufigue is killed in a fight with Ugolin. Jean Cadoret, a descendant of Pique-Boufigue and a hunchback, eventually inherits the property; he is also unwilling to part with it because he wants to support himself there by breeding rabbits; Ugolin calls him Jean de Florette. Jean de Florette, who is unaware of a well on his own property that has been plugged by Ugolin and Papet, must acquire water for his rabbit farm from a distant spring; this proves extremely difficult to do.
