Unbeatable on anything to do with the race, he spends as much time as he can on his bike, to escape from a disappointing everyday existence. At work, he’s restricted to bicycle displays. And things at home are no better: his son thinks he’s a loser and his wife berates him for being a coward. So when his wife discovers on the eve of his holidays that he’s been volunteered to work on the Tour, it’s too much.Then he meets Rémi, a depressive former sports manager who’s also at the end of his rope. Under Remi’s influence, François makes up his mind to live his childhood dream...though dreams can be overwhelmingly filled with road blocks.But when all seems lost, when there’s nothing left to hope for, François resolves to go on to the bitter end... has his moment finally come?Screenplay: Romain Protat, Lyes Belaïdouni, Yohan Levy / Cinematography: Gilles Porte / Set Design: Arnaud De Moleron / Costumes: Emmanuelle Youchnovski / Producer: Olivier Delbosc, Marc Missonnier, Nicolas Souhami, Renaud Souhami / Principal Cast: Clovis Cornillac, Bouli Lanners, Ary Abittan, Bruno Lochet, Elodie Bouchez / Contact: Wild BunchTHE DIRECTOR: Laurent Tuel (born 1966) is a French film actor, director and writer.
