Camilo is a solitary fifty-year-old who works for a cleaning company in Montreal. He used to run a successful restaurant called Le Coyote, but he has been struggling to find work in the culinary field since his establishment went out of business. An old friend offers him a position as a chef in the suburbs. Just when it looks like life will cut him a break, his estranged daughter lands on his doorstep, announcing that he has a grandson. She asks Camilo to take care of Zachary while she goes back to rehab. The arrival of his grandson will upset all of Camilo’s plans. There will be a new beginning for him, certainly, but not as he imagined it.
Winner of the Borsos award for Best Canadian First Feature and Best Performance at the 2022 Whistler Film Festival
