Borderline was adapted from two quasi-autobiographical novels by Marie-Sissi Labrèche: Borderline and La Brèche (The Breach). The movie crosscuts between three different periods in the main character`s life. Kiki is, or can be, a child, or a 20-year-old party girl careening toward a sex and booze meltdown, or a 30-year-old budding writer trying to exorcise her destructive past. She is the daughter of an institutionalized mother who was raised by her grandmother in a down-and-out neighbourhood of Montreal. School, when we see her as a young girl, provides the only safe haven she knows. Ad when she grows up and leaves the safety of her school, Kiki uses sex and alcohol to escape from the daily grind. Finally, at 30 years of age, Kiki finds the love that`s hardest to accept: love of herself.
