Sixty–something Rita Bilodeau lives alone in her small house, beside a
rushing stream. This is where she plans to get old – and be
happy, joyful and free. She has a social life too, and we follow
Rita to the ladies Scrabble Club, consulting Roger, the local auto
parts dealer, visiting Berthe’s lush garden and Jacinthe in her
artist’s studio, in addition to participating in a bean bag toss
tournament…a village life as typical as it is surprising.
An observation film that make think on aging and highlights this
demographic fact that with the advancing age, many women find
themselves widowed and alone; even when they are in the majority in
their age group, they remain little visible socially.
