Late Graduates

A Feature film by Renaud Bertrand

Produced by Magnificat Films

Release in France : 14/06/2006

    Synopsis

    It’s not easy to find work at 40 when you’ve just lost your job and have no diploma.
    Despite their solid professional experience, pals Michel and Gérard are confronted by the bitter fact: no high school diploma, no job! Because they’ve got to ‘retrain,’ Michel decides to sit the wretched diploma that he never managed to pass way back when. He drags Gérard to school, where he finds his son, Philippe, who could care less about the examination.
    The pair’s insane project causes incomprehension among their friends and family, and is the butt of ironic commentary from their neighbors in the little town in Bordeaux where everything is kept under wraps, but where everyone knows what everyone else is up to. No matter, their adventure will allow the two friends to rediscover a most important weapon: self-confidence.
