Geneviève Saint-Louis (Sylvie Léonard), is a 38-year old, highly successful career woman rising up the corporate ladder. Her life is highly organized life and seems to have no time for anything besides work. One day her Aunt Aline (Béatrice Picard) shows up on Genviève`s doorstep penniless and determined to stay out of a retirement home. Because the elderly and eccentric former cabaret singer singer was best friends with her late mother, Genèvieve invites Aline to stay, but soon her previously hyper-organized life is turned upside down. Aline not only upsets Geneviève`s carefully ordered life, but also her relationship with her husband and her carefully crafted career plans. The septuagenarian singer drags her niece through wild meanderings of imagination as she unveils the mysterious origins of their family and a dramatic love story of her youth. It’s an odyssey that takes the two women far away from old age homes and the corridors of power, to an exotic past including a trip to Cuba.
