Sarah has an all-consuming passion for running. When she’s offered a spot on the running team at McGill University, she’s thrilled, despite her mother’s disapproval and the financial burden she’ll have to assume in moving to Montreal.
Her co-worker Antoine, who’s secretly in love with her, offers to move with her and suggest they become roommates so he can help with the expenses. He then suggests they get married so that Sarah can access government loans and grants available.
The duo set themselves up in a small apartment and have a ceremony performed at City Hall. But while their arrangement frees Sarah to put her heart and soul into her training, it provides a source of frustration for Antoine, who wants more than ever to conquer Sarah’s heart. Until one evening when they spend time with friends, and Sarah becomes aware of her attraction... for fellow runner Zoey.
