France, Canada
2015 / Drama
Running time : 1h38
Director : Philippe Lioret
Starring : Pierre Deladonchamps, Gabriel Arcand, Timothé Vom Dorp, Catherine de Léan

Frenchman Mathieu (played by César Award-winner Pierre Deladonchamps) finds himself in strange circumstances when he learns the father he never knew has just passed away in this engrossing and deeply poignant ode to familial bonds from praised director Philippe Lioret (Welcome, 2009).

Synopsis

In the wake of this startling news, Mathieu is overcome with eagerness to unravel his life’s mystery, to receive the package his father left him, and most of all to meet his two brothers. Thus, the following day, he travels to Quebec, where he is welcomed by his father’s best friend, Pierre. However, Mathieu’s intentions are thwarted when Pierre forbids him to reveal the true purpose of his visit to his brothers who are unaware of their relationship to him. With the body of his father still missing, and forced to conceal his true identity, Mathieu undertakes an extraordinary and compelling journey of self-discovery against the picturesque Quebec landscape.
A deep investigation into the search for personal identity, this is a piercing depiction of blood ties and redemptive love that will plunge a transfixed audience to rare and profound emotional depths not easily forgotten.
