the great darkened days "la grand noirceur"
While a world war rages, Philippe, a draft-dodger from Quebec, takes refuge in the American West, surviving by competing in Charlie Chaplin impersonation contests. As Philippe makes his long journey home, he encounters various characters under the sway of a destructive madness born of the chaotic times. His voyage, both violent and fascinating, is a hallucinatory initiation to the darker side of the American Dream.
