Eight years ago, Quebec was ravaged by a terrible war. Valérie survived the worst, but her lover died before her eyes. Now a nurse in a chronic care facility, she’s trying to rebuild her life with her new boyfriend, Gabriel. She’s also trying to help a patient, Jeanne, get back on her feet; the two have built a close, irony-filled friendship. For his third film, Martin Laroche (Tadoussac) builds a full-on dystopia, the better to explore, through both realism and strangeness, survival and grief. A captivating work starring an intense and convincing Léane Labrèche-Dor.
