On September 26, 1985, exactly 30 years ago, Coluche launched “Les Restos du Cœur”. The organization appears to be just a food distribution, but it is actively fighting poverty, helping people get a job; get a home or professional training, and also gives away food in secluded villages, all the while encouraging access to culture or vacations for the socially disadvantaged.

Take a look at behind the stage with this amazing documentary.

Anne-Claire Coudray and her team will drive you through this road movie from Paris to Montluçon, through Auxerre, Toulouse or even Dijon, meeting those people who fight every day to save lives, thanks to their charitable actions.

You will meet characters as original as touching, and will see some shows created every year by some students from a prestigious engineering school.

The goal? Leave a permanent mark in your mind and heart: The Resto’s country!
