Confronté à des musiciens impatients, en pleine rupture amoureuse, Dédé oscille entre moments de création et périodes d'angoisse.

Le 8 mai 2000, il s'enlève la vie dans son appartement de Montréal. [(c) Médiafilm]. Contient, entre autres, un documentaire sur les coulisses du tournage, des scènes inédites et le vidéoclip ##Bon Yeu## avec Sébastien Ricard. [SDM]
