Synopsis

Michel is the son of a paralyzed writer, the husband to a Congolese refugee and father of a future tennis champion. He is an erratic Belgian inventor misunderstood by his employer. At age 41, he learns he's been adopted and was in fact birthed secretly in a Quebec barn, in Sainte-Cecile. In the summer, Michel ventures to Sainte-Cecile, a sleepy village that soon makes him want to run back home. There, he meets a man who drives an anachronistic hybrid car. On their way back to Montreal, an accident will change their lives forever as well as the very future of the automotive industry.
