Description: Emile returns to Canada, the country of his birth, after a lengthy absence. This triggers a remarkable journey into the consciousness of a man in his twilight years, melding past and present and asking the question: can past injustices be remedied? Now retired, Emile travels from England to receive an honorary doctorate from the University of Victoria. He takes advantage of the trip to visit his niece, Nadia, who lives there with her young daughter. For Emile, the visit unleashes a torrent of memories of his life in Canada before he moved abroad -- his troubled relationship with his brothers, tragic accidents and unrequited love. Emile's arrival prompts Nadia to revisit unresolved feelings about her past as well.
