Tom, a young advertising copywriter, travels to the country for a funeral. There, he’s shocked to find out no one knows who he is, nor who he was to the deceased, whose brother soon sets the rules of a twisted game. In order to protect the family’s name and grieving mother, Tom now has to play the peacekeeper in a household whose obscure past bodes even greater darkness for his ‘trip’ to the farm.

 

Set in Quebec’s rural panorama, this psychological thriller centres on the gap between city and country and the oppositional nature of men who live there.
