The first fiction feature by Mathieu Roy (Surviving Progress) stars Marcel Sabourin in the role of the father, Roy Dupuis in the role of Gabriel, the jet-setting reporter, Émile Proulx-Cloutier in the role of Eric, the pilot in training, and Florence Blain in the role of Maia. The film also features French actress Julie Gayet and the Senegalese musician Zal Sisshoko.

At 80, Henri Bernard has begun to suffer from dementia and keeps wandering away from his country house to find another more "comfortable" one. His two sons, Gabriel, who travels around the world covering wars and political hotspots, and Eric, who can’t get enough flying time because of filial duties, disagree about what to do with their increasingly erratic and forgetful father. Gabriel considers placing the old man in a nursing home but is turned off by what he sees when he and his father visit one. Eric scolds his brother for not "being there." He fends off his girlfriend Maia’s complaints and is resentful that his efforts seem unappreciated. But through the pain of their predicament, the two brothers realize that they must overcome their differences so that they are together when they accompany their father to the enigmatic place that he keeps seeking, the place he calls "the other home."
