Marvin Bijou runs away. Changes his name to Martin Clément. He has fled his small village in the Vosges Mountains, escaping his family - his father’s tyranny and his mother’s resignation; intolerance and rejection, the bullying he suffered from being singled out as "different". Against all odds, he somehow manages to find allies: first, Madeleine Clément, the middle school principal who introduces him to theater and whose name he later adopts as a symbol of his salvation. And then, Abel Pinto, his mentor and role model, who will encourage him to tell his story on stage. Marvin, who becomes Martin, will risk everything to create this show that represents so much more than success: it is his path to reinvention.
