Francis and Mary are good friends. One night, they meet Nick, a young man from the country who has just settled in Montreal. From encounter to encounter, from moment to moment, troubled by innumerable signs – some real, some imagined – Francis and Mary fall deeper and deeper into their fantastical obsession. Soon, they find themselves on the precipice of a love duel that threathens the friendship they once thought indestructible.
