A surprising tour of France, in which Philippe Gougler, our guide, gives us a rendez-vous with charismatic, offbeat, surprising and happy characters! This collection of 6 x 52 minutes goes to meet French people who have been able to create their own universe and find happiness in all its forms, as unusual as they may be: a child psychiatrist who saves lobsters, a professional cow photographer, a former aerospace worker who has created a refuge for pigs, a ghost hunter… With humor and tenderness, Philippe Gougler takes us gently into the world full of fantasy and poetry of these characters. The accents, the customs, the expressions, the very approach of the existence and the relation to the others, vary according to the regions and form a colorful palette. At a time when uniformity seems to be the law, we meet people who sparkle with originality and who, in their own way, keep alive and fresh our roots, our lands and the notion of a Europe of regions.
