Nine actors find themselves deep in the heart of France’s Aveyron region at Actors Anonymous, a detox center for actors who want to get acting out of their system. Their aim: to overcome their addiction to the stage, the camera and showbiz so as to once again lead normal lives. They’ve never met before and must participate in a series of exercises aimed at ridding them once and for all of any desire to perform. A separation period, followed by a gradual reintegration of toxic substances, is the cure. To date, the center has had a 72% success rate.
