Rémi is a boy who was brought from the street by the sweet Madame Barberin when he was very little. Rémi lives happy and unworried in a small town. At the age of 10, Rémi is taken from the arms and the house of his foster mother by a man. This man takes him to the big city to deliver him to the orphanage. Rémi ends up running through the streets of the big city in order to not be captured. Finally, Rémi is captured and attracts the attention of a man who wants to make a deal: to rent the child. This man is Vitalis, a mysterious itinerant musician that is always passing from city to city without a home. Vitalis buys clothes to the boy so then it matches his. Vitalis is not alone. He is always with his dog called Capi and a little monkey called Lovely Heart. The four of them will travel from city to city to do their little show so they can eat. In a determined moment, Vitalis gets clean with the boy: he has rented him because he wants him to sing in public. Rémi becomes friends with a girl in a wheelchair. This girl will tell him that her parents have found his and Rémi and Vitalis will start an adventure to know the roots of the boy. The movie is based on the classic novel of Hector Malot. It is directed by by Antoine Bloisser and starred by Daniel Auteuil, Maleaume Paquin, Virginie Ledoyen and Jonathan Zaccai.
