The Meteor

Forty-something Pierre, his mother and his wife are linked by crime, guilt and loneliness. Like casualties of love and desire, they are dying to stick their heads above water and breathe the air of life.

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]
