Mars & Avril

Adapted from two acclaimed graphic novels, Mars & Avril is set in a futuristic Montreal, where humanity is about to set foot on Mars. JACOB OBUS (Jacques Languirand), a charismatic musician, takes pride in slowing down time by playing instruments inspired by women’s bodies, designed by his friend, ARTHUR (Paul Ahmarani). A love triangle develops when Jacob and Arthur both fall in love with AVRIL (Caroline Dhavernas), a young photographer. Enter EUGÈNE SPAAK (Robert Lepage), inventor, cosmologist and Arthur’s father, who unveils a new theory about man’s desire to reach Mars and helps Jacob find the true meaning of life and love.
