Festival starts in


By day, Sasha works at her family’s flea market shop. By night, she makes YouTube videos in the hope of becoming the next big thing. During Quebec's National Day, a client films Sasha as she performs a duet with her grandmother, a fallen star in Quebec's music industry. Basking the glow of the former diva's aura, she sees her popularity skyrocket.

To her, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.
