Synopsis

The film is the third of a trilogy started with La Neuvaine (The Novena) in 2005 and Contre toute espérance (Summit Circle) in 2007, all directed by Bernard Émond.

Dr. Rainville (Jacques Godin), an aging country doctor with a deep attachment to his patients, is about to retire and is looking for a successor. Jeanne Dion (Élise Guilbault), an emergency room doctor from Montreal, agrees to go to a small town in Abitibi named Normétal to replace him for a few weeks, with no plans for an extended stay. When Dr. Rainville suddenly dies, Jeanne must decide if she’ll take over the job, and its inherent responsibilities, for the long-term.

The film also stars Eric Hoziel, Sylvain Marcel, Angèle Coutu, Michel Daigle and Danielle Filtault.
