This film is set in Osaka, Japan at the 1970 World’s Fair, which attracted people from around the world. Sophie, a young Montreal actor, is appearing in a play by Feydeau at the Canada Pavilion. Within 24 hours, countless problems arise. The assorted events and encounters prompt urgency in Sophie that leads to heated debates. In one of these encounters, she meets Hanako, a young translator blinded by the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. She also meets Walter, a cultural attaché from the Canadian Embassy, and his wife Patricia during a meal. Her fellow actor, François-Xavier, falls in love with Sophie but his persistent pursuit smothers her. Both ironic and comical, this series of events happens just as Sophie discovers she's pregnant and tries to contact her lover in Montreal to break the news.
