It is the late nineteenth century and Joseph Ferdinand Cheval is a simple postman who criss-crosses the department of Drôme every day, from village to village. Solitary and taciturn, he is bowled over when he meets the woman of his life, Philomène. They have a daughter, Alice. For this child, whom he loves more than anything, Cheval throws himself into an absurd endeavour: to build her an incredible palace with his own hands. He will spend 33 years on the construction of this masterpiece of naive art.
