It’s August 1993, 24 years after the events of Prairie Nurse.

Romeo Alvarez is travelling across the country from Ontario to British Columbia to attend University when he makes a pit-stop in Saskatchewan to connect with some of his mom’s old friends. His journey leads him to a remote cabin where his unexpected arrival is greeted by a suspicious Beatrice Klassen. It is here, on these doorsteps of a rustic cabin in North East Saskatchewan that two teenagers, whose histories are serendipitously interweaved, spend one evening with a boom box under the magnificent Saskatchewan sky at dusk.

A romantic comedy that is sure to capture the hearts of audiences, The Waltz explores whether we ever truly feel at home in the world. (
