    • Synopsis
    • April returns home to Toronto after travelling and working abroad for several years to help her sister Sara care for their mother. Upon April's return, she literally unearths old family secrets in the backyard that threaten the gentle balance of home. Sara, who is studying the music of French composer Erik Satie, befriends a homeless man Erik who may have a connection to her mother’s romantic past, while April equivocates on a marriage proposal from her long distance boyfriend whom she met on her travels. The story culminates on the eve of their mother's birthday dinner, when April’s boyfriend arrives unannounced from Argentina and Sara’s homeless friend shows up for the celebration.

      The style of the film is a natural, humanist look at life’s small moments which lead to possible profound change.
