The film stars Rémy Girard and Pauline Lapointe as Léo and Ginette Lespérance, a married couple who, after facing one too many Montreal winters, move their family to Fort Lauderdale, where they buy a motel catering to "snowbirds". However, their new business runs afoul of "Big Daddy" (Raymond Bouchard), an established motel operator and local crime boss, who makes it his mission to drive the Lespérances out of business.
The Lespérances may, however, have an ally in Jay Lamori (Jason Blicker), a local businessman of uncertain motives who may or may not be what he seems.
The film received eight Genie Award nominations at the 14th Genie Awards, including Best Motion Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Girard), Best Actress (Lapointe), Best Supporting Actor (Yvan Canuel), Best Screenplay, Best Achievement in Overall Sound and Best Sound Editing.
