Alex Lachance is a retired actor turned bartender. When he buys a tavern, he thinks he’ll get back to the real world and quiet anonymity. He didn’t expect that his bar would become a hangout for celebrities looking for a sympathetic ear, along with their gin & tonic. BARMAN consists of twelve intertwining mini-sagas, both absurd and touching, brought to life by cameos from Québec artists. It’s a chronicle of the daily life of a guy who got out of showbiz only to find that showbiz wasn’t ready to let him go.
