Jimmy, a down-and-out gambler and alcoholic, decides to make one last grand attempt to escape his life of mediocrity: On the eve of his 50th birthday, he concocts an elaborate scheme to promote a rodeo to end all rodeos in northern Quebec. The film's vérité style at first lends authenticity to Jimmy's farce as he poses as a flashy American producer, but when things start to go wrong, it transforms into a film noir and crime documentary.
