    Orelsan is a figure of French music. But 20 years ago, in Normandy, he never imagined doing rap for a living. Singing middleclass boredom in the provinces, who'd go for that? The only ones to believe in it are his three buddies Skread, Ablaye, Gringe, and his little brother Clément who keeps filming him, convinced that one day his brother will be a star.

    2011. With Le Chant des Sirènes, Orelsan is playing in the big leagues. As a master of opposite moves, he takes everyone aback by deciding to discontinue his solo undertaking and revives the Casseurs Flowters band that he had founded with Gringe in the early 2000s. Gringe hasn't rapped in years, though... But once they recapture their world, their zany adventures come to life on CD, TV and film.
