The Olympic champion, world record holder in pole vault (6.16 m), in the eyes of director Cédric Klapisch. A former pole vaulter himself, the filmmaker was able to follow Renaud Lavillenie in the privacy of his Olympic preparation for two years. Between performances and confidences, he delivers a touching portrait of the athlete, as close as possible to the track, to flight, to achievement.
