After losing his job, his wife leaves him and goes on vacation with their son. François takes the opportunity to sneak in the Tour one day ahead of all the pros. At first on his own, he is soon joined by others who are inspired by his challenge. Then, one of his acquaintances exposes him, thus provoking a media frenzy. François ends up drawing all the attention on him, overshadowing the yellow jersey of the Tour who, enraged, will do anything to stop him.
