Much more than a singing contest, Eurovision is a representation of French culture in the European landscape.
This documentary focuses on the choices and the strategy put in place by the French delegation of Eurovision to bring their candidates as far as possible in the contest.
A real musical marathon, our camera follows the selection of the 12 candidates, until the victory of the Breton group Alvan & Ahez and then accompanies them to Turin.
Between testimonies, moments of life, confidences and backstage, the documentary is also the story of the initiatory journey of artists in the making, towards the light of the biggest European stage.
