This documentary follows Malgus, a Star Wars fan of generation X, collector and cosplayer in the 501st Legion. Other fans gravitate around him, like the couple JEF and KIM, well known in the Star Wars Quebec fandom, as well as Steeve, Huron-Wendat businessman, owner of Sagamité restaurant and a toy boutique dedicated to Star Wars. Malgus is the elected commanding officer of the Quebec garrison of the 501st, but he began to doubt the group, and is looking more and more to live his passion in solitude. We have witnessed the evolution of their passion and how it transforms them. Hence, we follow them in their daily life in order to understand why so much gratification derives from Star Wars.

This documentary is the first of its kind on this phenomenon: it distinguishes itself first by its ‘truthful cinema’ style, and takes a look at generation X that is present at the trilogy’s first theatrical releases.

Director Marc Joly-Corcoran will be present during the screening.
