"I prefer to be taken for a fool than to sleep my life away". A veritable emblem of Quebec's counter-culture, the poet Claude Péloquin has always lived without compromise, on a tightrope while "tempting death". On the trail of his disorderly life, this singular documentary invites us to follow Péloquin by means of footage shot on the fly, archival material and samples of his work.
