An intense take on a famous novel by one of the most gifted young Quebec filmmakers. After the hard-hitting Those Who Make Revolution Halfway Only Dig Their Own Graves, Simon Lavoie is back with a solo effort inspired by Gaétan Soucy’s literary classic. In a remote country house, two teenagers left to their own devices try to get a handle on their domestic chaos after their father dies. A highly anticipated and, needless to say, personal adaptation.
