Damon (Kristian Bruun) shows Phoebe (Cara Gee) his Red Rover video presentation.
This is the story of Damon (Kristian Bruun), a Toronto geologist who lives in his ex’s basement and spends his spare time with a metal detector on the beach. (It is a nice beach and surprisingly there is almost never anyone else visible on it.) Later we will find out that he is on that beach looking for something specific, and he will find out the real reason he’s looking for it.

Kalinka Petrie (Brynn in “Necropolis Now“) will be Jeanne in the horror/comedy LA MALÉDICTION DE JONATHAN PLOURDE, the story of a 23 year-old designer who falls in love four times only to have each of his lovers die suddenly. Convinced that he is cursed, Jonathan (Félix-Antoine Duval) is determined to give up on romance, until a new employee named Jeanne enters his life. With the help of a co-worker who is well-schooled in unexplained phenomena, Jonathan tries to figure out how to have Jeanne in his life without putting her in danger. Petrie told Karine Paradis of Envedette: “The most interesting thing about Jeanne’s character is that she’s the only one who does not know about Jonathan’s supernatural angle…so it was really interesting to play that, because she tries to find rational explanations, real explanations, to explain Jonathan’s bizarre behavior.” LA MALÉDICTION DE JONATHAN PLOURDE premiered on the Canadian French language network Super Écran on 12 November. Episode 4, in which Jonathan has a difficult and emotional discussion with his mother and takes part in a dangerous rebirth session, will air on 3 December at 9pm. A trailer is available on Vimeo.
