Geschichtsprofessor im Ruhestand und überzeugte Sozialist Remy (Remy Girard) ist kein einfacher Zeitgenosse. Besonders mit seinem Sohn Sebastien (Stephane Rousseau) vermag der todkranke Mann kaum ein paar Minuten verbringen, ohne dass sich eine herbe, für beide verletzende Auseinandersetzung entwickelt. Dabei ist der "Prinz der Barbaren", wie der Vater den erfolgreichen Börsenmakler spöttisch nennt, extra aus London ins heimatliche Montreal heimgeflogenen, um seinem Vater beizustehen. Zunächst aus Pflichtbewusstsein du gewohnt professionell sorgt er für ein Einzelzimmer und andere im maroden kanadischen Gesundheitssystem unübliche Sonderbehandlungen. Neben Remys Ex-Frau Louise (Dorothee Berryman) und Sebastiens Freundin versammeln sich nach und nach alle engeren Freunde und Ex-Freundinnen des Schwerenöters um das Krankenbett. Damit die Schmerzen den sarkastischen und gleichzeitig lebenshungrigen Sterbenden nicht die letzten Tage verderben, besorgt Sebastien seinem Vater sogar Heroin und mit der süchtigen Nathalie (Marie-Josee Croze), der Tochter von Remys Ex-Liebe Diane (Louise Portal) eine Expertin bei Kauf und Dosierung der schmerzunterdrückenden Droge. Mit Heroin und Rotwein wird das Sterben fast zu einem euphorischen Erlebnis. Schnell spricht er über sein Lieblingsthema Sex, wenn auch nur mehr aus der Erinnerung. Vor 17 Jahren hatte die Freundesclique in einem kleinen Landhaus am Memphremagog-See über den Untergang des amerikanischen Imperiums philosophiert. [...]
