In rural Canada, during a long drought, farmers Marie and Simon struggle to run their small, family-owned business. The recent, profoundly painful loss of their younger son adds to their financial troubles, while their older son, Jean, a restless teenager, is discovering his sexuality. Then tragedy strikes again: Simon dies in a work-related accident and a despairing Marie is left to nurse reopened wounds. When she becomes the object of the attentions of a stranger who witnessed the accident, Jean is left to fend for himself. –Venice Critics’ Week
Overall underwhelming first feature from Guy Edoin centered by yet another powerhouse performance by Pascale Bussieres. One can't' fault the technical side but the story is purely cliche and is hurt by an ending that trivilizes what took place before and a failure to reconnect with the credits scene which leaves a viewer disappointed. Gabrile Maille good in the role of the boy with able support by Papineau.
