Caroline (Alexandra Stewart) is torn between two cultures, the English-speaking community of Vancouver where she grew up and the French-speaking Québec where she is currently living. Her uncertainty extends to her lovers, Peter (Robert Howay) from Vancouver who wants to take her home and Marc (François Tassé) from Québec who would like to continue their pleasant, if inconclusive affair.
