In the furthest corner of Brittany in a library that collects rejected, unpublished manuscripts, a young editor discovers a novel which she considers a masterpiece. It was written by a certain Henri Pick, a cook who died two years earlier and who, according to his widow, had never read a book in his life or written anything apart from a shopping list... When the book becomes a huge best-seller, literary critic Jean-Michel Rouche teams up with Joséphine, Pick’s daughter, to unravel the mystery. "Rémi Bezançon's adaptation of the novel is an amusing literary thriller - finely directed, superbly acted and full of quiet humor about the publishing industry and writing itself." (spielfilm.de)
