Montreal, 2028. Surrounded by drones and useless gadgets, four vain thirty-somethings get together for dinner. ''Creative'' work, daily anxieties and ''transients'' (miserable refugees living around town) are the order of the day while the four of them wait for one Pascal. Will he come?

A graduate of UQAM in filmmaking, Guillaume Harvey is fascinated by cinema’s diverse array of narrative possibilities. In 2015, he directed the short A Bomb, which was seen and enjoyed in festivals around the world. An eclectic designer and screenwriter, Marc-André Charpentier likes to look at society’s problems from a distanced point of view. Working together, they write and direct broad satires taking aim at our culture’s faults and absurdities.
