JR and Agnès are an odd couple: He is a 33-year-old street artist; she is almost 90 and a film legend. Together they get aboard JR’s magical bus, which has a slot on one side from which giant images pour out, images of the people they meet while they roam the French countryside.

He sees the world through dark tinted glasses, she is going blind, but together they have a keen eye for the stories hidden in the many portraits they create. The portraits are then exhibited on the walls of the French villages they visit, walls that also have their own stories to tell. But this documentary is more than just a journey through charming villages. It is also a journey through the lives of the artists themselves. It is a warm and genuine depiction of people coming and going, of friendships made and broken, and of random meetings that can have an impact on us forever.
