A Story of Confinement

In need of a hug

Neither Zoom, Facetime, Skype, nor any other social networking tool can ever replace flesh-and-blood encounters.

Liliane Lessard, Gilles Lavoie, Lise Goad and Hercule Boulanger tell us how much they missed the physical contacts with family and friends that were denied them because of health restrictions. By collecting family photos, Michèle Laverdure was able to preserve memories of this unique period.
