Pierre-Paul (Alexandre Landry) is a shy, 36-year-old intellectual with a PhD in philosophy who’s 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 provocative crime caper from Academy Award-winning writer/director Denys Arcand (The Barbarian Invasions, The Decline of the American Empire) takes a witty yet touching look at the predominance of money in a society where all other values seem to have crumbled. (Partially subtitled)
