Canada, 2005micro_scope.  Screenplay by Louise ArchambaultCinematography by Produced by , Music by Production Design by .  Film Editing by .  

Deeply felt drama about a gambling addict () who crashes at the home of her sister-in-law’s () in an effort to get it together long enough to move her and her daughter to California to start a new life. Meanwhile, Grenon is tired of her husband’s constantly leaving her alone and going on business trips and looks to make a new friend () that has a closer connection to her than the audience at first realizes. Wonderful characters, sparkling direction by Louise Archambault and a heartfelt script make for a very rewarding experience, with Grenon and Moreau giving outstanding performances.
