A young couple find out what love truly means when one of them has a brush with death in this drama from writer and director Rene Feret. When Anne (Salomé Stévenin) and Marc (Nicolas Giraud) met, it was love at first sight, and the longer they were together, the more they realized they never wanted to be apart. Not long after Anne and Marc were married, they decided they wanted to have children, but when Anne had trouble conceiving, they both went to the doctor. During Marc's checkup, his doctor discovered some unexpected symptoms, and Marc was soon diagnosed with Hodgkins' lymphoma. As Marc goes through grueling rounds of chemotherapy, he and Anne find their feelings for one another tested, and discover that hardship can make true love stronger. Comme Une Etoile Dans La Nuit (aka Like A Star In The Night) received its North American premiere at the 2008 Montreal World Film Festival.
