Plot

Pierre (Habich) is a photojournalist from Montreal who's working on a reportage in Nicaragua. There he sees many people being executed and he takes photographs of them. Even of the death of a young child and of his mother crying. Back home in Montreal, his ten-year bisexual ménage à trois (threesome) is over. Sarah (Tremblay) and David (Voita) have moved out, leaving Pierre wondering why. Pierre is haunted by his experiences and memories in war, and those of his relationship with Sarah and David. The memories in his mind are most of the times shown in black and white mouvies with emotional background-music. After some days, when he's been stalking David and Sarah with his photocamera, he meets the young deaf-mute Quentin (Pichette). After a while he's able to begin a new life with Quentin.
