Dr. Yves Rainville (Jacques Godin) has been serving the community of Normétal in the Abitibi region of Quebec for forty years, and has seen it go from a thriving mining town to a nearly empty dot on the map. Increasingly ill himself, Yves advertises for a temporary replacement, hoping to find his successor. Dr. Jeanne Dion (Élise Guilbault) answers his ad and makes the trip from the city to the country looking for a more personal medical practice than her current position in a busy emergency room. She soon discovers that while there may be fewer patients in Normétal, they require a deeper commitment, from the sixteen-year-old girl seeking an abortion to the wealthy and secluded businessman who uses his helicopter to fly Jeanne in for check-ups. Yves offers advice as he prepares his last gift to the community he has healed for so long.
