This short, bleak French-language drama is the first film by Canadian director Andre Theberge. The story concerns a young woman saddled with too many concerns and not enough means. She has been ill and has been given the job of sewing shirts as a means of recovery as well as a livelihood. Abandoned by her husband, she has three very young children to raise, and the combination of fatigue, worry, and just plain despair slowly send her over the brink.
