Félix is an oddball Québecois with no money mourning the recent death of his father. Meira is an ultra-orthodox Jewess with a husband and child, who is having a hard time dealing with the strict rules of her religious community. Félix and Meira should never really have been fated to meet in Montréal. But they do and fall in love and begin a secret tryst in which Meira discovers hitherto unknown freedoms and is then at some point faced with the question: Is Félix worth giving up her family and community for? Félix & Meira is a tender drama about the collision of two parallel worlds and a love which like that of Romeo & Juliet cannot be.
