Finalist for the Governor General's Award for Translation. Benoit, a born-again Christian, has brought his fiancee, Isabelle, to an isolated cabin in order to escape "the world." Francois is waiting for a pizza when his girlfriend calls from a clinic to say she's decided to abort their baby. Francois drives to the clinic, shoots the doctor, shoots his girlfriend, and places the fetal remains in a waste basket. He arrives at the cabin, asking for a mason jar for his "son" and some tape to secure the shotgun to his arm. Welcome to twelve days of hell.
