A civil war shakes Canada. Valérie is the sole survivor of a mass execution in which her boyfriend is killed. Years later, she’s in a new relationship. At the Long Term Care Centre where she works as a caregiver, she befriends Jeanne, a well-read and witty resident. What ensues is a surreal journey that mixes grounded realism with the bizarre as the lines between time, reality and identity blur.
In a time when social unrest and division is the norm, it’s not so far-fetched to imagine the ‘free world’ turning on each other and committing atrocities in the streets. With a sensibility reminiscent of the works of David Lynch and Charlie Kaufman, the stage is set for Léane Labrèche-Dor’s spellbinding performance in a film that explores survivor’s guilt, the grieving process, the distance of time, the power of love, and the joy of being alive.
