    • Synopsis
    • Pierre-Paul Daoust, 36, an intellectual with a PhD
      in philosophy is forced to work as a deliveryman
      to afford a decent living. One day, while delivering
      a parcel, he gets caught in a hold up gone terribly
      wrong: two dead and millions in money bags
      laying on the ground. Pierre-Paul is confronted
      with a dilemma: leave empty handed, or take the
      money and run?

      This new Denys Arcand film takes a witty yet
      touching look, as only Arcand knows how, at the
      predominance of money in a society where all
      other values seem to have crumbled.
