Set in Québec in the 1960s, during those years often described as The Quiet Revolution, Simone Beaulieu has risen to become Mother Augustine, the head of a small convent on the edge of the town of Richelieu. Passionate, resilient, Mother Augustine puts all her energy and her musical talent into her students. When her niece Alice entrusted to her, she learns the girl is not only a new piano prodigy, but a young woman whose aspirations are in tune with the times, which are less than peaceful. The school, despite its small size, is a musical gem that can sweep all the major piano prizes. Morning, noon and night, the large corridor to the main staircase resonates with music, everything from waltzes by Chopin to Bach inventions. But when the Quebec government introduces a public education system, the future of Mother Augustine, her Sisters and beloved students is threatened.

La passion d’Augustine won Best Film at the first Gala du cinéma québécois in March 2016.
