Magic tricks can’t compete with rock ‘n’ roll in the 1950s, so a French illusionist finds himself touring Scotland’s shabby pubs and run-down restaurants. But things brighten for him when he meets Alice, a girl who believes his powers are real. Originally written by French comedy genius and cinema legend Jacques Tati as a love letter from a father to his daughter, but never produced. Please note this is a PG film.
