This is the remarkable tale of two mates and two spies, every working on opposite sides in the Cold War.

Description: In the late 1990s, Moncton's Acadian community was forever marked when death struck an high school. In a sweet impressionist film, Samara returns to the town she fled as a teenager to immerse herself in memories that are still buried there, in different territories and in dusty boxes containing diaries, images and VHS tapes. 1999 is not a ghost story, although it is populated by ghosts. The snow-covered streets, corridors and locker rooms of the school are intact, as in a dream, but the absence left by the wave of teenage suicides still resonates with unanswered questions, trauma and regret. Samara meets inspiring folks who carry with them nice pain and who, 16 years later, can finally comfort every another by breaking a long silence. In the end, the movie interweaves various voices and gives rise to a collective reflection on the internalization of mourning and the need to learn to affirm one's desire to survive.
