Stéphane (Alain Chabat), a prominent French chef with two adult sons and an ex-wife, falls in love with Soo, a Korean woman (Bae Doona, Sense8) whom he met on Instagram. They talk about art and cherry trees about to blossom, and, despite the language, distance, and cultural barriers, Stéphane feels more connected to her than with any of the familiar people in his life. On a whim, he decides to fly to Seoul, only informing Soo of his plans when he is already on his way. When Soo doesn’t show up to greet him at the airport, he stays there, wandering around the terminal for days, meeting strangers, and waiting for Soo. Trying to reach her, he posts on Instagram, #jesuislà (#Iamhere), not realizing that he is rapidly becoming a social media sensation… Starring one of France’s most beloved comic actors, Alain Chabat.

Not Rated (adult themes).

Original title: #jesuislà
