"«Le Québec, mesdames et messieurs, a besoin de lecteurs, des gens qui ferment leur télé, leur radio, leur ordinateur, leur tablette, leur lecteur MP3, leur téléphone, leur montre intelligente (eh oui…), des gens qui décident courageusement de s’extraire de la cacophonie du monde contemporain, d’affronter la solitude, et de s’astreindre à la réflexion en ouvrant un livre. On dit souvent sans trop y penser que lire, c’est se réfugier hors du monde. Je pense exactement le contraire. Lire est un acte de liberté. Dans le silence, dans la solitude, nous allons librement à la rencontre d’une autre pensée, d’un autre regard sur le monde.»"--Page 4 de la couverture

Promenade dans la vie de Henri Turcotte (1913-1990), un homme simple et sans histoire qui a passé toute son existence dans le quartier Hochelaga à Montréal. L'histoire de ce marginal nous est racontée par son barbier, par ses voisins et par une artiste qui se sentait très proche de cet original. Turcotte a exercé toutes sortes de petits métiers (planteur de quilles, homme de ménage, etc.) ; c'était aussi un "ramasseux" de vieux bois dans les ruelles qu'il entassait chez lui, et un "patenteux". Il vivait seul et est mort dans la rue. Un film sur la dignité et l'importance de toute vie, même la plus modeste
