Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Simone Dubuc (Nadine Nadeau) lives in Quebec with her husband Pierre (Pierre Curzi) and two children. Each year, her mother (Michele Magny) comes for her regular visit, and each year, Simone gives her mother a bunch of wild flowers and they fruitlessly try to talk to each other in a normal, human way. The family takes some trips together -- to the seashore, to a farm -- and throughout their excursions the mother and daughter never really share their true thoughts, opting for their usual formal exchanges -- in fact, the mother is adept at making her daughter squirm if she tries to be too informal. Resolution seems a long way off, but then, there is always next year...
