Following the success of his first feature film, Mabrouk El Mechri (Virgil) presents the paradox of celebrity and reality through a story inspired by the life of action hero Jean-Claude Van Damme. Starring himself, JCVD tells the story of a fallen action hero through opposing points of view. When he is held hostage in a bank robbery and the myth of his celebrity collides with the unpredictable nature of reality, can the man measure up to his legend?
This unique perspective on the false relationship between a celebrity and the public is explored in a story that combines reality with fantasy and comedy with drama, all in the exciting, gripping genre of hostage/cop films.
