In this amiable comedy, the villagers of St. Marie-La-Mauderne in northern Quebec set out to seduce a Montreal doctor into becoming a local. Their once-prosperous fishing industry has run dry, and only the promise of a new plastics factory coming to town can keep the quaint and lively community intact.

Since the new factory requires a resident doctor to be on hand, the boisterous and resourceful mayor (Bouchard) sets out to keep Dr. Christopher Lewis (Boutin) in the village. Dr. Lewis, whose stay in the village was caused by a speeding ticket, is a man of eccentric tastes — he loves cricket, beef Stroganoff and women in open-toed sandals. The villagers set out to create a community that mirrors the habits and loves of the good doctor. Will they succeed?

Winner of the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival.
