With Christine Beaulieu, Jean-Sébastien Courchesne, Jean-Luc Kanapé

Accompanied by her lover, Sophie (Christine Beaulieu) travels to the Côte-Nord to honour her late father’s last wishes: namely, to have his ashes scattered in Schefferville, the place where he’d spent much of his life before the mine closed. When tragedy strikes, the couple find themselves trapped in a near-ghost town whose past secrets begin to bubble back up to the surface. A spine-tingling thriller set way, way out of the city, Fortin’s splendidly crafted first feature, anchored in the Innu community of Matimekush, ventures into an isolated region to set the stage for an authentic encounter between the quintessential city slicker and nature.
