Téléfilm. Dans ce téléfilm, Tremblay s'intéresse à une vieille femme nommée Albertine qui, au sortir d'un long séjour à l'hôpital, se résoud à emménager en centre d'accueil, dans une petite chambre qui sera son chez-soi jusqu'à la mort. "Parce que ça va mieux, parce que je suis tranquille, parce que je vais être bien ici, même si ça sent pas bon", se dit la dâme âgée de 70 ans. "Vous êtes pas toutes des consolations, t'sais", lance une de ses personnalités passées aux autres. La dame revient sur son passé par le biais de conversations avec ces cinq autres elles du passé comme si chacune venait la hanter devant la grande maison familiale à la campagne où se hument les parfums de la vie et de l'été. Montréalaises de première génération elles ont été forcées hors de leur campagne vers une pauvreté systémique de la mondialisation. Elles sont donc cinq femmes en plus d'elle, chacune à 5 âges différents de sa vie d'adulte, jouées par 5 comédiennes et portant 5 noms différents comme si elles étaient 5 soeurs jalouses qui n'en finissent plus de vouloir s'exprimer voire s'imposer et ce, malgré le fait qu'elles ne cessent de se reprocher l'une l'autre leur beauté autant que leur laideur individuelle.--[Servicesmontreal.com].
