  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


An adult-oriented French-Canadian drama, this is a story of grief, guilt, redemption, faith and the need to 'let go'. Two strangers meet at an emotionally challenging time for both. Elise Guilbault commands the screen as Jeanne, a middle-aged doctor whose attempts to help a battered wife (Isabelle Roy) yield unforeseen, tragic consequences. How do you cope with senseless violence or the impending death of someone you love and without whom you can see no future?
