Synopsis:

A box-off ice blockbuster and the winner of a whopping 11 Genies, C.R.A.Z.Y. is an infectious, entertaining coming-of-age drama. When Zac Beaulieu (Grondin) is born on December 25, 1960, it becomes clear that he is different from his four brothers. He vies desperately for attention and acceptance from both of his parents, but in particular, from his loving and old-fashioned father, Gervais (Côté).

The f ilm follows Zac over the next 30 years, as life takes him on an epic journey to come to grips with his sexual identity.
