Pierre-Paul, 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 holdup gone terribly wrong: two dead and millions in money bags lying on the ground. Pierre-Paul is confronted with a dilemma: leave empty-handed, or take the money and run? In the inimitable Denys Arcand style, this film offers up a comical and moving reflection on the predominance of money in our societies where all other values seem to have crumbled.
