A man of few words, Gaby manages his family's farm on his own, despite his advancing age. With his two grown daughters living far away in the big city, he spends his days tending to the animals and land that surround him, eschewing modern technology and most social interactions. When his eldest daughter, Marie, appears at the family homestead to share news that she's getting divorced and in desperate need of money, Gaby's quiet life begins to unravel. In an effort to tend to his children much the way he steadfastly tends to his farm, he'll be forced to make sacrifices he never intended for the sake of those closest to him. Winner of the SACO Prize at the Cannes Film Festival (Critics Week) and Winner of a Best Actor at the Canadian Screen Awards, Mark Adams of Screen Daily says, “An elegantly simple family farming drama [that is]...beautifully shot and impressively performed!" [2013, Canada, Runtime: 111 min, French with English subtitles]
