On the 27th of February 2016, in the city of La Baie, Quebec, the fisherman Marc Gagnon discovered something that made him famous overnight. He caught a Fletanus Giganticus, a new species of halibut that could reach several meters. 


To give a portrayal of this local hero, we will meet his close family members, as well as Pierre Tremblay, Professor of Marine Biology at UQAC (University of Quebec in Chicoutimi), who will confirm his words.


Marc Gagnon will show us his vision of the World through his habits and his poetry. Now that he is part of those Men who constantly push the boundaries of the unknown, is it worth it?
