Pile ou Face (Heads or Tails) (Dir. Fernand-Philippe Morin-Vargas) (15 mins.)

Panicked at the idea of losing his position, incumbent mayor Joseph L’Heureux refuses to accept the result of his hometown’s municipal election.

Trois Pages (Three Pages) (15 mins.) (Dir. Roger Garpiepy)

An unassuming middle-aged accountant learns he has only weeks to live. Rather than tell everyone, Martin determines to learn the three pages of a Bach adagio for piano he’d abandoned as a child.

Veterane (Dir. Pier-Philippe Chevigny) (15 mins.)

Camelia, an escort with a troubled past, is newly employed at an erotic massage parlor in eastern Montreal. Met coldly by her competitive new colleagues, she struggles to establish a clientele while maintaining her dignity.

Fauvre (15 mins.) (Dir. Jeremy Comte)

Set in a surface mine, two boys sink into a seemingly innocent power game with Mother Nature as the sole observer.

Marguerite (19 mins.) (Dir. Marianne Farley)

An elderly woman and her nurse develop a friendship that will push them to dig up unconfessed desires and passions in an attempt to make peace with their pasts.

Poisson de Mars (March Fools) (13 mins.) (Dirs. Pierre-Marc Drouin, Simon Lamarre-Ledoux)

Struggling with depression, Louis finds out that his family is planning a prank on him for April Fools’ day. Problem is: it’s only March.

Florida-Montreal (15 mins.) (Dir. Renaud Lessard)

Mom breaks up with Dad while on vacation in Florida and flies back to Montreal. The kids, two immature, immoral and impressionable twentysomethings, only have a few hours to figure out how they’ll welcome her back.
