When Thomas was five, his mother made him the best poutine in the world. The next day, she disappeared. On his fourteenth birthday, Thomas decides to make the world’s biggest poutine in order to set a Guinness world record. He embarks on this mission in the hope of garnering the attention of his father, who is crippled by sadness, and filling the void left in the wake of his mother’s departure. Thomas will need the help of all of his friends and entourage in order to carry out this ambitious project, and overcome his many challenges.
