Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
When she is raped by her uncle, a teenaged girl flees her small-town home in Quebec for the anonymity of Montreal. There, she gives birth to a boy whose parentage, when he grows old enough to be curious, she keeps to herself. Instead, she says that his father was a poet friend of hers who died in an auto accident. Meanwhile she moves from working as a bank clerk, to working as a convention hostess. As he grows older, the lad comes to doubt her story, and eventually the truth is unveiled.
