Professional drunkard and schemer at times, for him it’s now or never, he wants to get out of this mediocre existence. Posing as a major American producer, he develops an advertising campaign to promote a rodeo in northern Quebec. The story develops initially in the Mile End district of Montreal, then transports us to the heart of the Far East of Quebec in a frenetic road movie.
