Henry is Jewish and is a professor at the local university in Canada. Julie is the daughter of Polish emigrants. Together they have twins, Nicolas and Nicole, who are 10 years old. They are a very happy family. Julie adores her husband until the day she arrives home early from vacation and finds Henry in bed with another woman. Henry is terribly remorseful - for him it was a one-night stand, and he begs for Julie's forgiveness. For Julie, the entire world has fallen apart; she doesn't trust him anymore and wants a divorce. In the middle of the dramatic event, their little boy Nicholas has fallen ill. It is cancer, and medicine cannot help him. All the members of the family cope in a different way with this tragedy.
