    • Synopsis
    • For Jocelyn and Serge Klur, nothing is going right: their factory that had made suits for Kenzo (Groupe LVMH) in Poix-du-Nord, near Valenciennes, was relocated to Poland. Now unemployed and deeply in debt, the couple stands to lose their home. That’s when François Ruffin, founder of the newspaper Fakir, knocks on their door, and he is confident about one thing: he's going to save them. With the help of a Belgian tax inspector, a communist nun, a rep from the Communist Trade Union and former sales staff from the Samaritaine department store, he plans to take the Klur’s case before the LVMH annual general meeting certain that he can appeal to the heart of its CEO, Bernard Arnault. But do these defiant Davids stand a chance against the billionaire Goliath? Suspense, emotion and genuine laughs ensue. Can our bumbling Picards manage to pull one over on the world’s leading luxury group and France’s richest man?
