    • Synopsis
    • Martin Clement, born Marvin Bijou, has escaped.
      He has escaped a little village in the countryside. He has escaped his family, his father's tyranny and his mother's resignation. He has escaped intolerance, rejection and the bullying he suffered from being singled out as "different." Against all odds, he has found allies. First Madeleine Clement, the middle school principal who introduced him to theater and whose name he will later adopt as a symbol of his salvation. Then Abel Pinto, his mentor and role model, who will encourage him to tell his story on stage. Finally, Isabelle Huppert will help him get his show produced and bring it to life. Marvin/Martin will risk everything to create this show that represents so much more than success: it is his path to re-invention.
