In the film, renowned French-Canadian actress Monia Chokri as Emma who is about to celebrate her 35th birthday. As a failed actress, Emma’s life achievements have thus far been quite unremarkable. She becomes fixated on the idea that she will commit suicide on her birthday. While preparing for this, she meets Alex Bodart, who works at the funeral home she is consulting. He is also an amateur filmmaker and offers her to star in a film about her own life. Together they proceed to undertake this bizarre project.

The screening is sponsored by the French Program and the Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures.
