This sensitive and quietly searing drama from Maxime Giroux depicts a relationship that slowly builds between two unhappy, dissatisfied souls in Montreal — Meira (Hadas Yaron), a young Hasidic mother, and Felix (Martin Dubreuil), a secular man she meets at a bakery. Caught in the middle is Meira’s husband (Luzer Twersky), who sees, but cannot ameliorate, Meira’s unhappiness. Outsiders Felix and Meira find each other, but what is less sure is whether their searches for something else will be enough to bridge their differences and sustain a relationship.
