Georges Is Dead by Charles Grenier

Étienne (Simon Larouche), a salesclerk at a sporting goods store in a Montreal suburb, is reeling from the loss of someone extremely important to him, a central part of his social and personal life – his best friend Georges (Guillaume Laurin). Lonely and depressed, Étienne is struggling to drag himself out of his grieving haze, much to the annoyance of Peter (Marc Beaupré), the manager at the store, who gives him an ultimatum to cheer up, or take a break from work. With Valérie (Fanny Rainville), a colourful, spirited and bubbly colleague who is always eager to help out by his side, Étienne meets Clara (Sarah Pellerin) a cynical, politically engaged multidisciplinary artist who is secretly working on a documentary on Western masculinity stereotypes. Opportunistic, Clara sees in Étienne the perfect subject for her film, and offers to help him find a new best friend. Throughout their adventures, a mysterious young man, Jo Beaulieu (Jean-Carl Boucher), spies on the trio and follows them everywhere. He carries a great secret: The double life Georges led before he passed.
