How much are we prepared to sacrifice to please others? This Canadian psychodrama is a gripping story about identity and self-abandonment. Star architect Alexandre has suddenly disappeared. Myriam, his life and business partner, is faced with a riddle – has her man left her or has something happened to him? The loss endangers her whole existence. Upcoming architect Frederic senses a career opportunity: so as not to jeopardize a  prestige project, he is to take on Alexandre's persona, with business continuing apparently as usual. What begins as a fascinating game with a new Me, is in increasing danger of destroying Frederic's own identity.
