Straight from Quebec, six acrobats and musicians amaze with their breath-taking and hilarious acts. This whirlwind of action comes together in a cheeky story, in which our five muscular rascals play survivors in a world without women and technology. Their mission becomes apparent right away: finding other survivors. It will be dangerous, but fun at the same time.

They easily let themselves get distracted by their flights of fantasy and share a special talent for getting themselves into perilous situations. It’s only natural! How could they survive otherwise in this universe devoid of women and computers?

Reckless, touching and comical, these six wacky characters share a contagious bond. They masterfully handle a teeterboard, juggling clubs, a drum kit and even a bath towel!
