Synopsis by Bhob Stewart

Claude Lelouch directed this French-Canadian romantic drama in which French futurologist Marc (Marc Hollander) declares luck and coincidence are not factors as he maintains math can be used to predict the future. Former classical dancer Myriam (Alessandra Martines), raising her young son Serge (Arthur Cheysson) alone, is pondering her future when she meets art forger Pierre (Pierre Arditi). The two find an attraction, and Pierre is planning a jaunt in which the trio of Myriam, Pierre and Serge will traverse the world. However, a boating accident and the loss of Myriam's bag at the Montreal airport bring other factors into play. Through luck or coincidence, Myriam's camera and tapes fall into the hands of Marc. When Marc looks at her tapes, he begins making plans to track her down. Shown at the 1998 Montreal Film Festival.
