Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Commitment versus desire is the focus of this soapy French-Canadian drama that follows two couples on the cusp of middle-age. Lea, a theater costume designer, is devastated when her long-time lover David, a novelist, suddenly leaves her for a younger woman. When he returns to Lea, she must cope with a series of doubts and fears. Lea's best friend Mariane is also having trouble. An acupuncturist/masseuse, she has given up on romance and men. When she meets the dashing Italian Nino, her opinion begins to change. Nino pursues her ardently and at first she questions his sincerity. But in time she comes to see that he is indeed sincere.
