In this offbeat romance from Canada, Myriam (Mirella Tomassini) is a Tunian-born woman living in Montreal, where she's nursing a broken heart after her longtime boyfriend Theo (Henri Chasse) breaks up with her. Myriam is keeping watch over a friend's house for several weeks while they're out of town; during this period, Myriam's father, who has not seen her in 20 years, decides it's time to pay a visit. Meanwhile, Myriam learns she has a new admirer, Lou (Jude Antoine Jarda), a genial, eccentric poet who snips off a lock of her hair during their first meeting and breaks into her apartment when he feels like saying hello. Myriam is trying to decide how she feels about Lou when Theo comes back, begging for another chance.
