Father and son pay tribute to the twelve journalists from the satiric French magazine Charlie Hebdo who died in the terrorist attack of January 2015. The film also captures the work of the editorial department while working on the first post-attack issue.

On January 7 th, 2015, two armed men entered the offices of the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. The result: twelve members of the staff of this classic in French culture were killed, including two heavyweights of acid, frontal comic strips. Not even comic books were spared from armed idiocy. Actor Daniel Leeconte and his son Emmanuel talk about the magazine, about its previous history with attacks, and even about that day, interviewing the survivor Coco, who narrates how she was forced to open the door, knowing what that meant. But I Am Charlie goes beyond mere interviews: in its most ferocious moments, it uses archive material from the offices, aims directly at the heart of “Maybe they went too far with their jokes?” and, while the wound is still open, understands the stupidity of that question.
