Abandoned by her husband, Jacqueline sacrifices everything to care for her son and vows to give Laurent a "normal" life full of happiness. Antoine (Kevin Parent), is a successful DJ in present day Montreal who seems to have it all: a thriving career, two beautiful daughters, partner Rose, with whom he is passionately in love. However, nothing is perfect and Antoine's ex-wife Carole remains devastated by their recent separation.
Touching but disjointed

This film, to my mind, attempts to pull two apparently separate threads together to some sort of resolution, but I felt that the way this was done was too laboured. There is too much rapid flicking between scenes and contexts, and this spoiled for me what could have been a very touching story.
