The only thing Sauveur inherited from his mother was the revelation of his father's identity. Sauveur drops everything to find that father. When he finally gets his father on the phone, the man mockingly denies paternity. The wounded Sauveur then adopts anonymity, becoming his father' s accomplice in a petty scam and thereby getting to know the man that his mother claimed could recite love poems. Thus begins an apprenticeship in disillusionment, until paternity catches up with them both.

For a long time, I've wanted to take a closer look at con artists. They're perfect scriptwriters - any mistake is costly - and accomplished actors. When two characters embody authentic yet ultimately conflicting truths, then a screenplay simply has to explore the upshot of that conflict. The son can't accept the vulgar tale told by his father, who nevertheless witnessed events; the father won't hear of anything other than chance and genetics. The sole, emotional truth escapes the father when he recognizes his son - by deserting him. (Rémi Waterhouse - Director)
