A raucuos romantic turqoise-blue pop-art fairy-tale about the relationship of Julie and Pierre. Julie loves Pierre. Pierre loves Julie. Julie loves France and especially the French accent. For his love for her, Pierre pretends that he's French and speaks with a French accent. A francophile roadmovie about loving and telling lies full of tender-ironical wild memories.
