In a small, isolated village near an unknown border, a newcomer disrupts the status quo when she decides to buy an old bar. Into the bizarre setting of this unusual place, with its two cemeteries and steeple-less church with a somehow malevolent aura, the young woman arrives and tries to fit in. But not just anyone is welcome here, and she soon faces a terrible dilemma: whether to give life to the village, or death.

This script was given a public reading at the Festival à haute voix in Moncton in April 2017, and will be produced by théâtre l’Escaouette and Théâtre de la Vieille 17 during their 2018–19 season.
