Father and Guns

To save the life of an undercover agent kidnapped by a biker gang, two cops infiltrate an outdoor adventure group-therapy for fathers and sons. The two cops are father and son for real – but they cannot stand the sight of each other and their biggest challenge is to survive the therapy without killing each other. Literally. Father and Guns combines the strengths of a classic comedy cop thriller with a study of a dysfunctional, father-son relationship. Father and Guns has raked in $11 million in its home market and is the highest-grossing French language film of all time in Canada.
