Welcome to the Sticks
Tuesday, June 20 6:00PM
To make his depressed wife happy, a French public servant from Provence named Philippe, plots to get transferred to the French Riviera. When his plan backfires and he is transferred to Bergues, a small town in the far north, Phillipe leaves his family behind to relocate temporarily there, with the firm intent to quickly return. Strongly prejudiced against this cold and inhospitable place, Philippe is surprised when Bergues proves to be a charming place teeming with warm, friendly people and co-workers.
