Introverted and obsessively single-minded, Sarah (Sophie Desmarais) lives to run. When she is accepted into the athletic training program at Montreal’s McGill University, she is determined to take up the offer, despite her mother’s surprising lack of support, both emotional and financial. A solution comes from an unexpected source, her friend Antoine, who offers to move in with her to help her save money and even proposes they wed to access funding for married university students. Already outside her comfort zone, Sarah has her world nearly upended by an unexpected sexual attraction to fellow runner Zoey, and the emergence of a medical condition that could affect her running career. A subtle and stylish comedy-drama about the consequences of chasing one’s desires.
