In King Lajoie, we first see Frank and Louise, aged 89 and 90, who still live in Gilles' childhood home and absolutely adore him. For them, there's always time to compare notes on the origins of their son’s 40-year passion. We also meet his astrologer Thérèse (who believes that Lajoie and Presley have a similar cosmic trajectory), his limousine drivers, his endearing octogenarian secretary, and a young impersonator who follows his footsteps with admiration and competition…

Through the prism of these colourful characters, we are immersed in the story of Elvis Lajoie and his surprising fanaticism. We get to know a man who lives in true symbiosis with his idol, with whom he shares much more than a name.
