French drama starring Gerard Depardieu as a retiree who takes to the road in his battle for his pension. Serge (Depardieu), a slaughterhouse operative, has finally reached retirement age after working without a break since he was 16-years-old. But how will he fill his days after a lifetime of work? He has no hobbies and is not particularly close to his wife Catherine (Yolande Moreau), who still works in a supermarket. When it emerges that Serge will not be automatically entitled to his retirement benefits owing to an administrative error by his former employers, he sets out across the country on his old Munch 'Mammut' bike in search of the missing paperwork - and finds himself coming face-to-face with unexpected elements of his past and present.
