Luc leads a peaceful life with his wife Stephanie, a sports instructor, in the wonderful region of Charlevoix in Quebec. A splendid wife, beautiful house, faithful friends, hunting, skiing, hockey - a perfect life, one would say. But it is marked by the severe depression that hit Stephanie and she is enamored of Melissa, a nurse and friend of the couple and she is the wife of Isabelle, a doctor. While honored in Paris for his career as an architect, he accidentally meets Lindsay, a woman he once knew -met while he was in Toronto to participate on a jury. He remembers their story of love fulgurate they lived on two nights. Caught in a triangle of emotions, he puts everything in jeopardy to pursue her as his seemingly-perfect life begins to fall apart.
The movie has received the satirical ''Aurore'' award for "Best Quebec worst film of the year" (2015) given at the Gala des prix Aurore, part of the Radio-Canada satirical TV show Infoman. See more »
In the centuries that follow, a civilization is always judged by its architecture. Building is an activity of hope. The hope that what we create will be useful and beautiful. The hope of telling future generations who we were. And the hope they will be moved, as we were by the architecture of those who came before us. Thank you.

It had low expectations and it was better than I thought
Being a huge fan of ''Le Déclin de l'Empire Américain'' and of ''Les Invasions Barbares'' I was anticipating this film to be pretty awesome until I read reviews that were saying that even though the images are absolutely stunning, the movie was empty. Well I definitely agree about the images, but the film wasn't empty at all. It was a realistic look at the life of a beautiful, successful young adult. The characters are ''modern'' if I can use such a term. They admit to cheat on their partner without any guilt like it was normal and I feel a little social criticism on Arcand's part. It's like the film Nashville, there's not really a story, but some observations by the director. I don't compare this movie with Nashville, but I think you get the point. It's a beautifully shot realistic view into a young successful architect life
