    • Synopsis
    • hilosophy teacher in the provincial city of Saint-Étienne, Grégoire is a discreet man of integrity. He strives to instill the fundamentals of wisdom in his lethargic high-school students. Circumstances lead him to Paris where he encounters a new student in the shape of Patrick, a star TV presenter. Patrick’s career is on a high, but he’s not happy. He wants to learn, he wants to change, he wants Grégoire to be his life-coach. Grégoire is uneasy about the offer; he plays hard to get, but eventually gives in. He agrees to play the Socrates for the Alcibiades of the small screen. But the game of self-knowledge holds some surprises. Of these two men from very different worlds, who will end up teaching the real lessons?
