1931. Brother Marie-Victorin was 46 when he met 23-year-old Marcelle Gauvreau. Both have been close to death and share the same love of God and nature. He becomes her teacher, later she becomes his assistant. Their friendship evolves. This great chaste love, the love of Quebec's flora, pushes Antoine and Roxane, who embody them on screen, to question their own relationship with love and Nature.
