Sarah is a gifted middle-distance runner who lives for the sport. When she is accepted into Quebec’s best university athletics program at McGill University, her mother refuses to support her, forcing Sarah to figure out a way to pursue her dream. Sarah’s friend, Antoine, proposes the pair enter a marriage of convenience in order to access spousal financial grants. Soon however, Sarah’s single-minded focus begins to unravel as she navigates her relationship with Antoine and develops an intense attraction to fellow runner, Zoey.
Screened at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival, director Chloé Robichaud, in her feature debut, has crafted a compelling character study of one young woman’s drive to excel while trying to find her place in the world.
