December 25, 1960: Zachary Beaulieu comes into the world, fourth in a family of five boys. An ordinary suburban family with a loving mother and a dad who’s a bit gruff, but proud of his sons. The beginning of a beautiful childhood, where Christmases and birthdays follow one after the other to the ubiquitous solo of the elder Beaulieu singing Aznavour’s “Emmène-moi au bout de la terre”, with simple joys like washing the car in the fresh air, and trips to the snack-bar with Zac, his father’s favourite. But not for long, alas!
That’s the lead-in to C.R.A.Z.Y., the story of a special little boy who grows into young manhood and ends up even denying his inner self to attract his father’s attention, where ordinary people strive to be happy in extraordinary ways.
A portrait of a family that depicts the often extraordinary lives of ordinary people in search of happiness.
