What We Have

Haunted by his life on stage in France, Maurice Lesmers seeks refuge in a remote town in Northern Canada. To make ends meet, Maurice takes a job tutoring French to 15 year old Allan, a shy student struggling at school; and lands the leading role in the local theatrical production of Moliere's The Miser. Maurice is surprisingly drawn to the stage manager, Michael but as Michael pushes for a relationship with Maurice, Maurice becomes tormented by childhood memories and recklessly immerses himself in Allan's adolescent world to protect Allan from a high school bully. When Allen misinterprets Maurice's attention for affection, Maurice's past catches up with him and he must confront a dark secret in order to stay in the community.
