Les Invisibles tells the stories of elderly women and men, pioneers in the gay and lesbian movement in France. Born in the years of peace following World War One, all lived through the Second World War and the NAZI Occupation, the student riots of 1968, and all the long years when homosexuality was regarded as a mental illness ... Director Sebastien Lifshitz shows us who the real heroes are through beautiful and charming storytelling and some of the most loveable characters you will ever meet.
