Based on the incredible true story of Joseph Ferdinand Cheval (Jacques Gamblin), comes the remarkable tale of a simple postman who spent 33 years crafting the magnificent ‘Ideal Palace’. Everyday Cheval travels along the river Drôme from village to village, quiet and alone he enjoys the solitude of his rounds, daydreaming about a world full of wonder he can only imagine through postcards. After his wife, Philomena (Laetitia Casta) gives birth to their daughter Alice, Cheval decides to build Alice a palace fit for a princess. With only his bare hands, his love for his daughter and the dedication of his wife, he starts carefully collecting stones and begins building the historically classified monument, THE IDEAL PALACE.
