Sara Leblanc, a young woman from Roberval, Québec, works at her mother`s pet supplies store in Montreal where she is constantly teased about David, a young accountant who seems to have his eye on her. But Sara has other things on her mind. Now, after numerous postponements, she is finally going spend a fishing weekend back with her dad in Lac-St-Jean. That`s when the phone rings at the pet shop; her dad`s cancer took a sudden turn for the worse and he died in a Roberval hospital. Furious at her mom, Sara rushes back to Roberval. She is determined to go fishing in his memory. That`s when Sara runs into an old elementary school classmate, Dan, a surly young man who works with his brother at their father`s fishing lodge. Sara remembers Dan, but the memories aren’t pleasant: he was always mocking her braces. People change, he tells her. Yes, she replies, though not always for the better. But, in this case they have. A romance is kindled. A perilous adventure, too. There are poachers at the lodge and they play for keeps.
