Hubert (Xavier Dolan), 16, a closeted homosexual, can't stand Chantale, his mother. Everything about her irritates him, from her vulgar behavior to her bad taste in wardrobe. But when he criticizes her, she feigns indifference. One day he announces his decision to leave home, to go to live with his best friend Antonin. She gives in, but a few days later, when she finds out from Antonin's mother that the two boys are lovers, she changes her mind. Hubert is furious and runs away. He stays with a teacher who is sympathetic to his dilemma, but Chantale, tired of this ongoing war, turns to the boy's father to see if he can reason with their son.
