Pierrot (Labbé) is a former table football champion who has always enjoyed life to the fullest. The man at the dawn of his fifties who left Morrocco to return to Saint-Hyacinthe, his hometown, to correct the mistakes of his past. Reconnecting with his son Victor (Limoges) is one of his main priorities, as is reuniting with his best friend Jacques (Doucet). Unfortunately, Pierrot is also a die-hard smoker and cancer has finally caught up with him, leaving him with only a few months left to live. This news is enough to force him to take stock of his existence and request a major favour of his best friend.


Après plusieurs années passées au Maroc, Pierrot, à l’aube de la cinquantaine, rentre à Saint-Hyacinthe, sa ville natale. Il veut revoir une dernière fois les gens et les lieux qu’il a jadis aimés. Il vient de recevoir un diagnostic de cancer en phase terminale et n’en a plus pour très longtemps. Désireux d’en finir dans la paix et la sérénité, il demande à Jacques, son ami d’enfance, de l’aider à partir. Après bien des hésitations, ce dernier accepte d’accompagner le malade au Maroc pour un dernier voyage. Les Vieux Chums est le 10e long métrage de Claude Gagnon (Kenny, Kamataki, Visage pâle).
