A tragicomic mockumentary about the tentative attempts of a father and son to get close. Among his deceased mother's possessions budding journalist Gauthier finds a letter that implies that he could be the son of French crooner legend Guy Jamet. Guy's golden era was decades ago, but he's planning a comeback with a new album and tour. Under the pretext of making a documentary about Guy's career, Gauthier and his camera accompany him behind the scenes, on stage and in the tour bus, allowing Gauthier to get very close to his father, in every sense of the word.
