    • Synopsis
    • A robbery going wrong: Fehmi sentenced in jail for a couple of years, with a straight admission to psychiatric care for a period of six months …
      His renewable sentence for another year will serve Massignon, a wormy head nurse, to test a new antipsychotic that has not yet been clinically approved and whose side effects can cause symptoms including hallucinations, disorganized thoughts or visions.
      With their sense of duty and friendship, three accomplices of Fehmi, not denounced while he was arrested: Francky, Georges and Jason, organize an evasion and head to an avenging visit to Massignon, just retired in a little Pyrenean village.
      They will inadvertently grab the unique Bernadette in their journey, a former prostitute locked in Ste Anne hospital to have had visions of Jesus Christ and whose ultimate goal is to go to Lourdes to offer virgin Mary a pot of white jasmines;
      With an oriented prime goal of crime and film noir, several circumstances will give this trip an initiatory path facing life, childhood and the light, a path where they make unforgettable, funny and moving encounters.
