Pierre-Paul (Alexandre Landry) is a 36-year-old with a PhD in philosophy who ends up driving a courier truck – a job that he believes is beneath him. Suddenly, Pierre-Paul has access to a new-found fortune which offers him the lifestyle he wants, but also results in numerous entanglements with authorities and the criminal underworld. Pierre-Paul’s decisions take him on an unlikely voyage where he needs all his wits to outsmart his various pursuers. This film, by celebrated Canadian Director Denis Arcand, is an investigation of contemporary society where the social contract that once underpinned our interactions proves hollow.
Groups of 8 or more (friends, family, company, school…) can benefit from the AF members price by sending an email firstname.lastname@example.org
