Miyuki Tanobe is a Japanese painter who has chosen to make Québec her home. She works in the Nihonga style, applying centuries-old techniques to scenes drawn directly from the working-class neighbourhoods of Montréal. The film records the progression of one of her paintings from a preliminary sketch to its completion, showing how thoroughly she has grasped the essence of her new homeland. Tanobe portrays Montréal and Québec life in a lively and perceptive fashion.
