SYNOPSIS

Thirty-something Gregory Morel has inherited his father’s position of Judicial Officer. He enforces and recovers court orders and legal claims: bankruptcy, property seizures and evictions. Not a very exciting job. While making his debtor rounds, he meets reclusive singer Michel Delpech (playing himself). The retired 70’s French pop idol has accumulated years of unpaid taxes and parking tickets. Morel, whose father adulated Delpech and played his songs throughout Morel’s childhood, cannot bring himself to confiscate the singer’s belongings. So he decides to help Delpech settle his debts...
