Écrivain public

( Season 3 )
Mathieu is a public letter-writer in a working-class district of Montreal. A role more human than literary: in a world that's become everyone for themselves, he takes time to listen to his clients and find words of comfort. Inspired by this experience, he wrote a book to share it.
