Enter a landscape of shocking old secrets!

Five residents in a retirement home are being interviewed for a documentary on the dreadful swarms of Lake Nipissing shadflies ― called éphémères in French ― that engulf North Bay every summer. These ladies find the request disappointing. They would much rather discuss a topic dear to their hearts: the Dionne quintuplets. Gamely, they share their memories for the camera, but in so doing, each of them ends up revealing a sordid page of her past. Tender, yet stinging, this dramatic comedy reminds us that life is… ephemeral.
