Myriam Boyer in the room Louise with an umbrella plays the role of a worker who, for four decades, has been putting umbrella whales in a factory. Her son Antoine (played by Guillaume Viry) is Youtuber. Two distinct worlds that Louise will try to bring closer by launching into the race for municipal elections. She wants to prove to him that it is not because one works in the factory that one does not have political opinions or just opinions.

Myriam Boyer likes to get on stage and it takes him from childhood with the pleasure that recitations give him on the board. Her parents are poor, a difficult situation, and yet “there was love and there was joy“Says Myriam Boyer.

At 17, she works in a jewelry store and one day burns herself by stamping a small jewelry box. This incident caused her to pass the Croix Rousse theater in her neighborhood in Lyon. She stops in front and comes across her director, who asks her if she wants to take body expression lessons. Myriam Boyer tells her that she has no money to pay them but the other invites her to come back: “She made me enter the theater and then I did not leave. It was a place where suddenly I existed, I felt in my place, people were interested in me“. And she rubs shoulders with many authors: “It's really amazing, life is really well done“So well done that she received two Molières, the first in 1997 for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and a second for The life ahead in 2008.

Very young mom, a very strong bond unites them. She adds about her son: “We grew up together, I think it's very pretty.”
