Overview

Consumed by fantasies of opulent fabrics and women’s high fashion, a young man desperately tries to restore his mother’s tarnished reputation. Channeling Yves Saint Laurent, his idol and muse, Hugo sets out to right the widespread rumours about his mother, Béatrice, by designing the perfect outfit for her court appearance. Through the story of Hugo and his mother, Michel Marc Bouchard explores the root of artistic creation and explores whether art can be a source of consolation.
