GRFF presents: Richelieu

2024 Grand River Film Festival presents Richelieu

Facing bankruptcy after a difficult breakup, Ariane moves back to the Richelieu Valley and gets a job in a food transformation plant for seasonal migrant workers. Focused on solving her financial issues, Ariane serves a translator between the factory’s aggressive supervisor and the Guatemalan workers hired as cheap labor. Tension slowly builds between the two sides, and the stakes develop into a crisis situation, with Ariane caught in the middle.

Originally from Cameroon, Awa works as a snow groomer driver on the ski slopes of La Thuile, the last Italian town before France. In the middle of her shift, she crosses paths with Souleymane, a young migrant desperately trying to cross the border. Helping Souleymane cross the mountain may be the only way for Awa to silence a dull and constant guilt.
