Longtime friends Charlie, Miller and Stef have just graduated from university in the Québec town where they grew up. Before they start their adult lives, they are hanging out for the summer, which marks the emotional end of their youth.

I saw this movie at about 7 years ago while channel surfing and fell in love, and now years later, Im still searching for it. I will never forget thinking this is one of the most sweet, funny and realistic movies I've ever seen (possibly because I had just graduated), and Canadian to boot. The characters were so well acted that a simple story reflects with humour the complexities associated with moving into adulthood. This is a great movie with a small cast and probably smaller budget, but there's movie magic in this little film. If you have the opportnity to catch this film, give it a chance, it'll charm you. Why isn't it available on DVD!?!?!?!?
