Dr. Rainville, an aging country doctor with a deep attachment to his patients, is about to retire and is looking fa successor. Jeanne Dion, an emergency room doctor from Montreal, agrees to go to Normétal to Abitibi in northern Quebec to replace him for a few weeks, with no plans for an extended stay. When Dr. Rainville suddenly dies, Jeanne must decide if she’ll take over the job, and its inherent responsibilities, for the long-term.

 
This film is part of the Émond’s Trilogy on the Virtues of Faith (The Novena) Hope and Charity (The Legacy).
Like the great French director Robert Bresson, Bernard Émond aims for a simplicity of style that records the pedestrian facts of life while suggesting deeper meanings about the human place in the order of things.

 Liam Lacey Globe and Mail

A meditation on charity that is both exhilarating and hopeful.
