Armand, a 43-year-old seller of farming equipment, decides that the life of a gay bachelor is no longer for him. What makes him change his ways is not a woman of his own age but Curly, a lively teenage girl who, for some inexplicable reason, finds him, an overweight middle-aged man, irresistible. Armand's entourage find it harder to accept this relationship than his previous homosexual liaisons. But Armand is certain that Curly is his ideal partner.

In my previous film Voici venu le temps, I was working from a world of legend (inhabited by warriors and bandits) and introducing current events and my own preoccupations. With Le Roi de l'évasion, I wanted to show the world of today. I wanted to go back to a naturalistic universe. Naturalistic as Flaubert defined it when he wrote that art is at its most beautiful and noble when it acts like nature, when it allows people to escape. (Alain Guiraudie)
