French (Available subtitled in English)
A young advertising copywriter in the country for a funeral finds that no one knows him, or what his connection is to the deceased. When his brother sets up a twisted game, it triggers a toxic dynamic that will end only when the truth comes out, regardless of the circumstances. This psychological thriller set in Quebec farmland, reflects the gulf between town and countryside, and the respective natures of those who live there. Based on Michel Marc Bouchard’s play, this short piece resonates with Stockhom Syndrome, bereavement, and psychological violence.
