Synopsis

Ce court métrage de fiction se déroule à Massabielle, un village acadien exproprié depuis peu pour permettre l'exploitation d'une mine, qui ne compte désormais qu'un seul habitant, Pacifique Haché, dit le « fou du village », qui refuse de quitter les lieux. Il ne reçoit pour toute visite que celle de l'avocat de la compagnie minière qui cherche coûte que coûte à le déloger. Un beau matin, employant une nouvelle ruse, l’avocat lui offre un magnifique téléviseur. Pacifique résistera-t-il au pouvoir insidieux de la télévision? S'inspirant d'un événement social survenu en Acadie, ce film se situe au-delà de la simple anecdote en proposant une solution certes farfelue, mais qui saura néanmoins avoir raison de l'avenir.
