Having retired from teaching, Emile returns home to British Columbia to accept an honorary degree from the University of Victoria. He accepts an invitation to stay with his niece Nadia and her daughter Maria, his only living relatives. It is obvious from the moment he arrives that Nadia would rather he was not there. However, the pair gradually bond and Emile trawls through a lifetime of reminiscences, dredging up painful memories.
