The titular protagonist is an amiable, carefree North African living in France who finds out the location of his birth father and sets out for Marseilles to meet him for the first time.  Felix decides to hitchhike his way to his destination in order to experience a little bit of freedom before his fateful encounter, along the way meeting various strangers who end up representing missing parts of a surrogate family for him, so much so that he wonders how much he really needs to meet his father in the end. Breezy and fun, not overly memorable but enjoyable nonetheless, particularly for its likeable lead character and the charming adventures he experiences.
