The language in this film may be offensive to some people. Viewer discretion is advised.

When tragedy strikes the graduating class of a theatre school, the future actors are forced to reassess their relationship with art, with acting, with the sacred. What was at first an exercise in a theatre class becomes an intimate and profound film in which the characters examine their own ambitions and the layers of fiction that underlie their lives.

With the decade long support of avant-garde institutions such as the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, the Festival TransAmériques, La Chapelle Scènes Contemporaines, and the Centre du Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui, the artist presents his works Chroniques, Nathan and L’Exhibition, amongst others. He takes part in the endeavours of great creators including Wajdi Mouawad, Denis Marleau, Dave Saint-Pierre, Mani Soleymanlou, and Jan Lauwers’ famous Needcompany, in addition to making his mark in the films of directors Xavier Dolan, Denis Villeneuve, François Girard and many others.
