Synopsis

Sara Leblanc, a young Roberval woman, works at her mother's pet supplies store in Montreal where she is constantly teased about David, a young accountant who seems to have his eye on her. But Sara has other things on her mind. Now, after numerous postponements, she is finally going spend a fishing weekend back with her dad in Lac-St-Jean. That's when the phone rings at the pet shop; her dad's cancer took a sudden turn for the worse and he died in a Roberval hospital. Furious at her mom, Sara rushes back to Roberval. She is determined to go fishing in his memory. That's when Sara runs into an old elementary school classmate, Dan, a surly young man who works with his brother at their father's fishing lodge. Sara remembers Dan, but the memories aren't pleasant: he was always mocking her braces. People change, he tells her. Yes, she replies, though not always for the better. But, in this case they have. A romance is kindled. A perilous adventure, too. There are poachers at the lodge and they play for keeps...

 

Director

Quebec native Samuel Thivierge attended Vancouver Film School where, in 2008, he began his professional career as an actor. After parts in several shorts, commercials and features he veered into the making of films, directing a short, Love Lost (2011), then writing the script for THE MARTIN GIRL and deciding to produce and direct it himself with producing help from his brothers and father. The film was shot on location at his family's Pourvoirie des Laurentides in Saint-Félicien. Thivierge has since produced and starred in THE ROAD TO TOPHET, directed by Steve Schmidt.
