At age 41, he learns he is adopted. He isn’t Belgian, not even European but was born secretly in a barn in Québec. Needing to find his true roots he travels to the sleepy village of Sainte-Cecile. While there, Michel meets a man who drives an anachronistic hybrid car. On their way to Montréal an accident will change their lives forever as well as the very future of the automotive industry.
