Loosely based on real life events, Gregoire follows four young adults and the choices they make when put at a crossroads of their life. Misha, after dumping her boyfriend - and getting fired from her job, learns that she is pregnant and tries to secure money for an abortion. Her best friend Alexa, who gets let go at the same time, tries to figure out her next moves, while getting involved in a co-workers relationship. Brothers Felix & Louis are successful convenience store robbers, and when a scuffle lands them in trouble, their mother Pauline gives them an ultimatum to find real work or be kicked out and on their own. As they struggle to make choices, their paths cross with one another and their choices affect not only themselves, but their friends, and their families.

experience

From my very first film, I have always wanted to make a film in my hometown of Fort McMurray, AB. I've always been heavily inspired by home, and it felt like the right time to finally make something there, instead of faking it in Vancouver. We shot the film with a minimal, very very minimal crew over the span of 15 days in June of 2015. We were thankful to get tremendous support from the local community and had no troubles filming almost everywhere that we needed to. Despite fatigue, our biggest issue with production came in the form of daylight. Northern Alberta only gets 3 hours of darkness in the summer, and this posed rather challenging for the production team.
