BICYCLE STORIES

SYNOPSIS

Claude, a passionate cyclist with a contagious drive, gives a second life to used bikes by sending them to the South. Where do these bicycles go and how do they improve people's lives ? From Quebec' s winter to Central America, the documentary rides off the beaten path and presents the many opportunities a bike can offer, socially, politically and economically, through encounters with five endearing characters. Abner avoids criminality thanks to the bicycle. Bélony can now go to school everyday. Luis is rolling to feed his family. And Carlos builds bike machines with endless uses. The bicycle is then more than just a hobby or a mean of transportation, it becomes a true tool of change for those who get on it.
