    Do not underestimate t the power of art!
    At the age of 35 year, Frédéric de la Chaise realizes that he has to get a job for the first time in his life. His parents went through all the family wealth.  he’d rather perfect his tap dancing than go to work. When he is hired as a guard at the Centre Pompidou he discovers a world he knows and understands nothing about. At first, he looks at the works he is supposed to watch over with contempt. But, day-by-day, little by little, a strange phenomenon takes place… Fred becomes captivated by contemporary art. Literally. He develops a unique form of Stendhal Syndrome and mentally projects himself into the work he’s looking at. A leap into the soul of creation which will open his eyes to art and his own existence.
