A New York chef, Jeanne Pellier has a problem with her supply of ducks which is the cornerstone of her highly successful restaurant, LE CANARD. Jeanne learns that one of her best suppliers, DUPUY Farms located in the middle of the Louisiana bayous, doesn't want to increase her order. Jeanne decides to go "visit" the Dupuy Farms and convince the old man Dupuy to "get with the program". In the meantime, her estranged daughter, Victoire ("Vicky") is set to stay with her while his ex-husband goes on his honeymoon. With no way out, Jeanne decides to make the best of this trip. Who knows, maybe she can kill two birds with one stone, so to speak, meet with her supplier and spend some "quality time" with her daughter. The next day, Jeanne and Vicky arrive in New Orleans where they drive to the middle of the bayous, in search of the world renown ducks. 


There they meet the Dupuy family, an old Cajun family that runs the largest duck farm in the country, as well as lots of other businesses in the area. For the next few days, Jeanne tries to navigate between trying to get the old man to agree to supply her with more ducks that she so desperately needs and is willing to pay any price while appeasing her daughter, who wants nothing to do with her mother, nor these backwoods, country ways.


Through the people they encounter, the events they experience, Jeanne and Vicky realize the value of family, life and taking the time to appreciate them.


Set against the harshly beautiful backdrop of the Louisiana bayous, Le Canard, is a road trip movie that explores the themes of family, coming of age, and culture clashes, with off-beat humor.
