Storyline

"The Promise (La Promesse)" is an urban romantic comedy that recounts 24 hours in the life of Victoria, an aspiring young singer who works as a bike courier in downtown Montreal. It is the eve of the new millennium, and Victoria celebrating her 25th birthday at the stroke of midnight. At the age of twelve, for her French class, Victoria had written a letter to the young woman of 25 that she would become on this first night of the year 2000. That letter recalls her two old promises: 1) to become a Star and 2) to meet Jimmy, her first adolescent boyfriend, on Mount-Royal the night of December 31st, 1999. Will they keep their promise?
