And what if Man were descended from the clown...
And what if Man were descended from the clown...
And what if Man were descended from the clown...

On the roof of a building, around a huge billboard, three remarkable characters meet: Barbouillette, a "Sonne­ Heure" by trade - in fact a most peculiar "bell ringer" - who actually lives in the billboard, Monsieur, a tragic actor who has never but never learned to laugh, and Bulle, an athletic and optimistic "contr-actor" there to repair the billboard. The shock (7.4 on the Richter scale!) resulting from the meeting of these three strange characters leads to a quite exhaustive portrait, clownish and musical, with many emotions and jokes getting the action moving again.
