When the life of Jean-Claude Van Damme collides with the reality of a hold-up in Brussels, Belgium, suddenly the huge movie star turns into an ordinary guy, filled with fears, contradictions and hopes. How can he be up to the legend he has built? What can a film hero do when the gun pointed to his temple isn't charged with blanks? JCVD finds himself at the turning point of his "hero" life. This film was imagined as a spiral adventure which starts off badly and which ends even worse. When external conquests, movies, cash and fame aren't worth anything compared to self-reconquest.
