For over 25 years, Marc Côté, street chaplain and parish priest, has lived with the poor and homeless. Today, Marc is a worn-out man. Exhausted from running his church, which serves as a refuge, and stressed by the bills he can no longer pay, Marc has to face the facts: he will have to close his church. Like a call from Providence, he inherits a property in the Bas-du-Fleuve and decides to take with him a group of homeless people who, like him, need a vacation. Le temps d’un été plunges us into a luminous story… A story woven of laughter, silence and tears… A heart-warming film where sun and clouds meet, leaving viewers with a delicious taste of hope.

Marie Vien began her career in advertising agencies. She then branched out into television, where she was involved in the design of several major specials and variety series, including Céline Dion, Daniel Lavoie, Angèle Dubeau and others. Attracted by documentaries, she became content producer for several social documentaries. In 2009, Marie turned to writing, scripting her first feature film, La Passion d’Augustine, which won her numerous awards, including Best Film 2015 at the Gala du Cinéma québécois.
