SynopsisSince 1980, Lucille Côté has lived in Laterrière, surrounded by more than 250 animals. With a silver mane and candid demeanor, Lucille practices a craft that has long been the exclusive domain of men: Taxidermy. Through various contemplative and country-flavoured tableaux, we meet a particular breed of taxidermist, living outside of the digital age, with enough skills to get by in the woods without a compass or a frying pan.

BiographyJoannie enjoys the simple pleasures in life, like riding her bike down a hill and feeling the wind flow through her hair, line dancing in pleasant company, jigsaw puzzles comprised of less than 100 pieces, bawling her heart out at the movies, fawning over little dogs, mismatched chinaware and ostentatious headgear.
