Synopsis

Pierrot returns to Saint-Hyacinthe, his hometown, to see again the people and places he loves and that he has always carried with him, even when he lived abroad. He has come full circle, closing the books. Pierrot is serene and has no fear of this premature death. He asks his childhood friend, Jacques, to help him end his days well. The approach, which is unusual, will nonetheless lead the two friends to a peaceful tranquillity.
