1985. Georges is stallholder and every inch a vendor. When he gets the chance to rent Café Derby and hears that the pope will celebrate mass on the terrain next to the café, a clever plan arises. A plan, in which also his wife, five children and all his colleagues believe. Because Georges knows how to sell everything, to everybody...

Café Derby, the first feature film by Lenny Van Wesemael, is based on the true story of her own extraordinary family.
