"Contempt it is not to be slapped, but to be ignored by one's peers"
An old actor loves both the stage and the camera lens. He wish he could play his first leading role : his own role. His character is staging a play about a cobbler who wish he could represent the common people to the presidential election. In 2012 Cabu, Wolinski and Charb of Charlie Hebdo did not know they would be murdered.
What's real and what's not? The actor's memories question the director's projections.
