KING LAJOIE delves into the kitsch universe of an Elvis Presley impersonator who has been shaping his life around his idol for over 40 years. Through the prism of quirky characters, we are immersed into the story of Elvis Lajoie and his surprising fanaticism. We get to know a man who lives in true symbiosis with his idol, with whom he shares much more than a name.
