A teenage girl from a small town in Saguenay, Quebec is constantly asked what she will do with her future. She builds her quest by learning the guitar from a man older than her, between her unionist father exiled in the far North and a stepfather who scorns the unions as the host of a populist radio station. (96 minutes)
