A chef in his heyday, Camilo is now a worn-out 50-year-old working for a cleaning company. The past of this solitary immigrant to Montreal reveals a personal failure. But Camilo wants to get back on his feet, and the opportunity to rediscover his culinary passion finally presents itself: a former colleague gives him a chance at a cozy restaurant in Baie-Comeau. Everything is in place for this new beginning when Camilo receives a visit from his daughter Tania, with whom he had cut ties due to his drug addiction. Tania informs him that he is a grandfather, and asks him to take the child into his care while she undergoes yet another detox. The arrival of this grandson upsets Camilo’s plans: there will be a new beginning for him, but not the one he imagined.
