At 22, Nicole (Julianne Côté) is adrift, working a dead-end job in her small hometown and lazing away her summer evenings with her best pal (Catherine St-Laurent). But when her brother (Marc-André
Grodin) unexpectedly returns with his bandmates in tow it becomes clear that something has to change. Displaying his trademark
absurdist humour and sense of ennui, Lafleur brilliantly captures that stage where the fading attachments of childhood seem far more appealing than the sterility of the grown-up world. Shot in luminous black and white, this is an affecting, eccentric, and funny coming-of-age film.
