The Fais un homme de toi documentary series follows Quebec celebrities as they attempt to carry out the tough everyday tasks one of their ancestors handled with ease, and the new respect they gain for their ancestors in the process. Changed by their experience, the personalities set out to better understand their ancestors by meeting someone (a close relative, friend, or witness) who will help them find answers to their questions.
Combining action, meetings, questioning, testimonials, and archives, Fais un homme de toi is a lively, subjective narrative of personal quest, where subjects take on a physical challenge to discover the amazing skills of an ancestor, and question themselves about their own physical strength and its importance in their lives today.
