From Beirut to Prague, from Noranda to Peribonka, there are granaries, skating rinks, letters, accidents, wilderness, confessions and exile. Bodies like continents.
Imaginary trains and a bachelor flat.
In Montreal, in their late teens, Mara and Hubert met and became infatuated. They run the streets, the cafés, the exhibitions, share Kundera’s novels and Kusturica’s films, exchange lines from Romeo and Juliet, live without moderation. They are like two fingers in the hand, friends, lovers, brother and sister of the forty-eighth parallel North. They dream of a railroad to rush towards each other. Then everything rushes forward: death, art, the future, to the point where love gets entangled and derails. In the suspended circus of impossible loves, Mara and Hubert love each other, but they don’t know it enough.
