Synopsis

A dapper and quick-witted, silver-haired car salesman named Marcel Levesque lives to sell. Perennially anointed "Salesman of the Month" at his dealership, he takes great satisfaction in the ritual of persuasion and selling. However, in the humble working-class town of Lac Saint-Jean, Quebec, where the impending paper plant closure is immobilizing the economy, purchasing a car seems utterly absurd. As more and more people lose their jobs, Marcel finds his life in a state of flux and realizes he must come to terms with the consequences of his obsession.
