“A tender romance that’s somberly seductive.” – Variety

Hadas Yaron (Fill the Void) stars in this unconventional and gripping romance between two people living vastly different lives mere blocks away from one other. Meira meets Félix at a bakery in Montreal’s Mile End district. What starts as an innocent friendship becomes more serious as the two wayward strangers find comfort in one another. As Félix opens Meira’s eyes to the world outside of her tight-knit Orthodox community, her desire for change becomes harder for her to ignore.
