Family Business

| 26 min

This short documentary presents an episode in the life of the owner of a general store in Pointe-Verte, New Brunswick. Nicole and Fabien, helped by their children, work 109 hours a week, never stopping. While the parents, now nearing retirement, have been holding the fort for over 30 years, their kids dream of a different future. The filmmaker, who grew up in a family grocery store, follows the daily events in this place of comings and goings, where life is all hustle and bustle. With scenes that are both funny and touching, the film pays tribute to these people who have devoted themselves to their community, providing a reassuring presence at all times. In French with English subtitles.

This documentary was made as part of the Tremplin program, with the collaboration of Radio-Canada.
