The estranged daughter of a celebrated Québécois filmmaker begins to adopt her late father's persona while curating a retrospective of his films in this wry comedy-drama from writer/director Terry Miles (Recoil, The Dawn Rider). Grace (Lauren Lee Smith) is gathering some of her recently deceased father's belongings when, despite never having actually seen any of his work, she agrees to help select films for an upcoming tribute series. Meanwhile, as reclusive Grace begins the formidable task of reviewing his filmography, she confides her growing sense of self-doubt in her close friend Clem (Jennifer Beals). Fortunately for Grace, her friendly neighbor Adam (Kett Turton) is a well-versed film buff who is more than willing to help with the project. But later, in the aftermath of an unsettling run-in with her late-father's lover and leading woman Sophie (Gabrielle Rose), Grace begins to experience a gradual personality shift that can only be attributed to genetics. Ben Cotton, Katharine Isabelle, and Sarah Grey co-star.
