Synopsis

Marvin Bijou, a young boy from a working-class family in a small French village, suffers constant bullying at school and home for being too sensitive and too feminine. A chance encounter with a drama teacher offers Marvin the opportunity to escape from his village to study theatre in Paris. In his mid-twenties, Marvin struggles to come to terms with his traumatic childhood experiences while also trying to find his place in the Parisian gay scene.
