An old woman will no longer leave her house, not even on Christmas. She prefers to stay home, rather than take the risk of falling or coming down with a cold. She settles into the solitude and isolation of her safe, interior world. But just as she's about to enjoy a peaceful dinner in front of the TV, her doorbell rings . . . This is a touching story about overcoming fear and the role of chance in life. India Desjardins is a journalist and writer who was born in Quebec in 1976. Pascal Blanchet was born in Quebec in 1980. He is interested in twentieth century design, architecture, and jazz.
