8 Épisodes Comedy, Drama

One ordinary morning at work, Elisabeth’s life is turned upside down: her husband is dead. Cruelly thrust into mourning, she must now manage the family farm and school her two tormented sons while dealing with her highly dysfunctional in-laws. But don’t judge a director by his résumé; although this first series by Philippe Falardeau (Monsieur Lahzar) and Florence Longpré is meticulously produced, it offers so much more. It is the story of a woman’s rebirth just as it is an account of the difficulties faced by South American workers trying to integrate into Canadian farms. It is a joyful ode to the fragile lightness of existence, to the farces behind every drama, and to life in general.
