Madeleine is 86. For the last five years she has lived at Château Beaurivage, a retirement home in Montréal-Nord. And she likes it there, a lot. She socializes with other residents and enthusiastically welcomes visits from her three beloved children. But when her mental state deteriorates and her memory starts to play tricks on her, the lady must move even though she had planned to live in the same apartment until the end. In this poignant documentary, the filmmaker explores a new facet of memory through a disarming and intimate portrait of his mother and her struggles with aging.
