Chorus

When the remains of their eight-year-old son are discovered 10 years after his disappearance in Montreal, a separated couple are brought back together. Each has been living in solitude—Christophe in a hut on the beach in Mexico, Irène retreating into the sanctuary of singing in an ancient music choir. Haunted by the unresolved mystery of their son for almost a decade, they are now faced with their biggest losses: the unfathomable tragedy of their son and the demise of their relationship. Together yet separately, they methodically close compartments from the past and move toward acceptance of the future. [Synopsis courtesy of Sundance Film Festival]
