- L’HIVER ATTEND BEAUCOUP DE MOI Léa seeks refuge in the cold and hostile climate of northern Quebec to protect both her life and that of her unborn child. She meets Madeleine, a tormented woman who promises to take her to the end of this road where no one goes. This journey brings up painful and fragile memories in the two women, jeopardizing their dangerous quest.
- LA VOIX HUMAINE A bedroom in disarray… an elegant young woman answers a telephone call from her lover, who is planning to leave her. Over the course of this final conversation, she tries to win him back, going from tender to passionate, from threats of suicide to calm, from regret to outbursts of violence.
