Synopsis

Jean-Marie et son épouse Nicole tiennent depuis quinze ans un pressing en centre ville de Belfort. Quinze ans d'amour et de fidélité, sans vacances, sans sorties... Et puis un soir tout va basculer. Sur la scène d'une boîte de nuit, un jeune garçon plutôt troublant fait un numéro de travesti avec sa sœur. Il s'appelle Loïc et séduit immédiatement le couple, qui s'accordait sa première sortie depuis longtemps. Alors commence pour Nicole et Jean-Marie une nouvelle vie, entre nettoyage de jour et dérapage de nuit, juste pour le plaisir de sensations fortes, pour le frisson...

Élevé dans un milieu très populaire et violent, incompris tant par un père alcoolique et rustre (Grégory Gadebois) que par une mère dépassée (Catherine Salée), le jeune Marvin Bijoux (Jules Porier) pâtit d'une différence qui le rend marginal et en fait le souffre-douleur de son frère et de ses camarades d'école. Grâce à la principale du collège (Catherine Mouchet), Marvin découvre le théâtre et finit par imposer son choix d'entrer au Conservatoire pour s'adonner à cette passion. Marvin fuit ainsi sa famille et son village des Vosges. En changeant d'identité et en devenant Martin Clément, grâce au théâtre, il va pouvoir s'assumer et s'épanouir. Devenu adulte (Finnegan Oldfield), à Paris, ses rencontres avec un metteur en scène au parcours similaire (Vincent Macaigne), un homosexuel flambeur (Charles Berling) et la grande Isabelle Huppert vont l'aider à façonner son propre destin.
