Directed by: Jacques Molitor
Georges is a single dad of three children: Cassandra, a young and emotionally mature woman, her little brother, the flamboyant Wesley, and the eldest, Ornello, a budding musician and skateboarder. Whereas three years ago, Georges weighed more than 120 kilos, a gastric bypass has turned him into a new man.
Recently, Georges came up with his “School of Life”, where he offers classes that are designed to give people the impulse to refocus on their surroundings and on themselves. But in his own private life, he is out of his depth: if Ornello doesn’t soon find an internship, he won’t be able to complete his school year. This turns every discussion between father and son into a head-to-head. Will Georges be able to reconcile his own insecurities and his professional ambitions?
