The story begins in 1979 when activists from May 68 carry out what was then the biggest robbery in the history of France. To finance the Autonomous Movement, my uncle Raymond and several friends robbed the Public Treasury of Condé-sur-l'Escault. They were all arrested, but Raymond had time to distribute his share of the loot, part of which went to our family who ran an anarchist printing shop in Toulouse.
I grew up in the middle of the woods in a community without god or master, a paradise populated by outlaws, literally, from all over Europe. I grew up with the certainty that one day I would be part of this kind of fabulous action.
But with time, years in prison for some, the standpoint of everyone changes and my family is torn apart. Many prefer to put it on the shelf, to take action is no longer on the agenda... But I was ready!
This film is the result of the friction between the stories of the main characters of these events, the fantasized memories of a kid and the media coverage of the events that marked my generation. A generation that is still looking for its revolution, stuck with its ass between two centuries.
