All his life, Michel Pagliaro (Pag) has been on a quest for the perfect 3:15 minute song. Following in the tradition of rockers like Eddy Cochran, Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry, Pagliaro's songs belie their initial simplicity. Director Eric Tessier captures Pag in all his ragged glory, from the wicked glint in his eye to his razor sharp suit.

Living the life of a Quebec rock star who is also known and loved in Canada; always searching for that perfect song; isn’t this the ultimate dream of all singer-songwriters? How does Pagliaro fit into Quebec’s music scene? Can we compare him with Canadian rockers such as Neil Young, Rush and Bryan Adams? Or is he in the same category as Quebec rock bands Harmonium and Offenbach? Running a workshop that lets students discover and compare various artists is a good way to introduce these musical styles and eras.
