In Montreal, the teenagers Manon, Anne, Isa, Claudie and Sophie are friends since their childhood. While spending a couple of days in the cottage of Sophie's parents nearby a lake, the girls decide to give a party, and Manon and Sophie hitch for a ride to the town in a jeep to buy some beers and supplies and they invite the driver to the party. On the return, the same driver stops the car and later Sophie is found stabbed, raped and covered of blood. Fifteen years later, Manon sees the guy in a car-wash and she invites her former friends to return to the house nearby the lake, where wounds of their traumatic loss are disclosed. Written by

An incredibly powerful movie that cannot be just seen and forgotten. Despite the difficult subject matter, the movie has everything friendship and love, heartbreaks and laughs, tragedy and hope, wonderful scenery and much more.
The actors give brilliant performances making their characters very real and thus adding poignancy to the story. Especially impressive is their ability to portray very different age groups.
I was amazed about the masterful camera work that managed to show emotions and feelings so precisely using landscape and different colour lenses.
