Gauthier, a young journalist, finds a letter suggesting he might be the son of Guy Jamet, a 72-year-old French pop singer who was famous from the 60s to the 80s. As the old-time crooner embarks on tour to promote his newly released cover album, Gauthier follows his biological father under the pretext of filming a documentary about his career, without revealing his recent discovery. Behind the scenes, on stage and on the road, Gauthier will learn everything about his father while putting together a moving portrait retracing Guy’s life.
French comic and director Alex Lutz portrays a pop singer from the 1960s in a mockumentary portrait of a seventy-something pop star who has seen better days but refuses to leave the stage. Directed by and starring 39-year-old French stand-up comic Alex Lutz, it’s a good-humored tour de force and audience pleaser.
