Acclaimed director Louise Archambault's charming new film depicts three aging hermits in the Quebec countryside whose defiant need to live independently is increasingly endangered by nature, old age, and infirmity. While wildfires threaten the region, their quiet life is shaken by the arrival of two women - a luminous octogenarian, unjustly institutionalized her whole life, and a young photographer charged with interviewing survivors of the region's deadliest forest fire.

Starring some of Quebec's most renowned actors and tenderly directed by Archambault (Gabrielle), this touching film explores how lives can intertwine in the most unexpected ways, and how love can happen at any age. Based on the award-winning novel by Jocelyne Saucier.
