A tender coming of age story of two brothers thrown into turmoil by their father's declining health, Grand Départ reveals a young man looking to his future, while struggling with his past. Between his domineering brother Luc (Jérémie Elkaïm) and his incorrigible father (César winner Eddy Mitchell), Romain (Pio Marmaï) finds that he can't go on being the boy who does what is expected of him. Approaching 30, Romain decides that it's time to face his family as an adult and, in the process, learn more about himself than he ever imagined.
