The title, in English, means, twilight, or dusk, which means the end of the day. Madeleine, 73 years old and recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, is now approaching the end of her days. She has decided to end her life, but before doing so, Madeleine wants to revisit the sites and places that were important to her. She hires Zoé, a 32-year-old musician, to accompany her on a trip from Montréal to Percé, in the Gaspé peninsula. While the two are standing on the fantastic heights of Percé’s Crevasse, where Madeleine plans to end it all, Zoé reveals that on the day before Madeleine called, she too had tried to end it all, but for very different reasons. From then on, the two decide their futures together.
