If anyone knows bikes, it's Raoul Taburin (Benoit Poelvoorde). He is the most skilled bike mechanic in the area, who understands the souls of his customers and those of their bikes. But all his life he has been tormented by a surprising secret, which he has not revealed even to his loving wife. He can't ride a bike! When the tranquil life of a sunny town in the south of France is disrupted by a dashing Parisian photographer, Raoul's secret begins to be revealed… This endearing comedy, based on the book of the same name by the brilliant illustrator, humorist and author of „Little Nicholas“ Jean-Jacques Sempé, tells a charming story of friendship, love, trust and the fear of one's own weakness.
