En visite pour son travail de rédactrice sur le site historique de la forteresse de Louisbourg en Nouvelle-Écosse, Margot croise un jeune homme séduisant qui lui rappelle quelqu'un. Mais qui? À son retour à Toronto, la jeune épouse de Lou, auteur en vogue de livres de recettes, découvre que ce mystérieux inconnu n'est autre que Daniel, son voisin d'en face. À la faveur d'une promenade matinale, celui-ci, un artiste qui gagne sa vie en tirant son pousse-pousse dans les rues de la Ville-Reine, croit déceler sous l'air désinvolte de sa voisine une profonde insatisfaction. Bien qu'elle soit attisée par plusieurs rencontres, l'attirance chaste de Margot pour Daniel continue de passer inaperçue aux yeux de Lou, un bon gars confortablement installé dans la routine. Écartelée, Margot fait un choix qui va bouleverser sa vie et celle des deux hommes qui l'aiment. [(c) Médiafilm].
