Vernon Subutex, record store and novel heroes

Vernon Subutex, in the novels, is one of the most famous record dealers in Paris in the 1980s. Forced to close his shop with the advent of digital technology and the record industry crisis, Vernon contacted his old friends to invite himself to their home for a while, claiming that he had rebuilt his life in Canada and was only passing through Paris. One of his friends, Alex Bleach, a rock-star on the way back, entrusts him, before dying suddenly, with three video tapes, which will bring a lot of trouble to Vernon.
