Laura has lost her both job and the custody of her son. She moves to a small studio and finds work here and there, slowly sliding into misery and depression until she sees a Brueghel painting that will go on to change her life. Suddenly our heroine decides to grab the world by the horns and try to change everything.
Like a quirky TV series, we quickly become attached to the bubbly Isabelle Ronayette who takes on the destiny of this rebellious mother. Funny and tragic, the episodes come one after another in a jazzy rhythm, to the tune of four remarkable actor-musicians. Irony, dark humour, passion and desperation fill this staggering creation, which ultimately fills us with joy.

An outcry of anger and humanism, electrified through a stupendous performance. Jean Boillot portrays a woman and our society, saying “no” to cynicism and “yes” to love. Thrilling stuff!

« How can we not applaud Isabelle Ronayette who so brilliantly portrays Laura Wilson, Mrs Average Person, with the guts to give a sense to the idea of “being” overcoming “having”? »
Le Monde

« Jean Boillot’s directing perfectly and subtly balances this script that brims with energy and rhythm. »
