Determined to stop drinking, Joseph moves into a friend's house and convinces his ex-wife Emma to join him. In the troubled times of Quebec independence referendum, this is the account of their stormy reunion.
Born in 1981 in Chicoutimi, Quebec, Félix Dufour-Laperrière studied in Montreal where he currently works. Director, and screenwriter, his work includes animated films, documentary essays and experimental shorts. His work, which shows a constant tension between narrative and formal exploration, always maintains a close relationship with the visual and contemporary arts. His films One, Two, Three, Dusk (2006), Rosa Rosa (2008), M (2008) and Transatlantic (2014) have been screened at numerous national and international festivals, museums and events, where they won several awards. Ville Neuve, his first feature-length animated film, is entirely drawn with ink on paper. He is currently working on Archipelago, an animated documentary and developing his second animated feature film, Death Does Not Exist.
