Under pressure from his brother Joseph, whom he hasn’t seen for 25 years, Paolo (Kad Merad) resigns himself to leaving behind his calm and harmonious life in Canada for a few days to return to Marseille to be by his dying father’s bedside. He leaves with his son, determined to not linger in his home city, from which he had fled many years earlier. But he does not take into account the affection bestowed upon him by his family, or an encounter with a young woman, not to mention the joyful and simple solidarity of Marseille folk.
Screened to mark the tenth anniversary of Glasgow’s twinning with Marseille.
