Between the white room, where she endures her mother's silence, and the blue room, where she sits with her father until he draws his last breath, Lise Tremblay recounts the lives of her parents. She describes their childhood on Chemin Saint-Paul, marked by poverty and madness, and their adult lives, as both try to escape the wounds of the past. Chemin Saint-Paul is a poignant account of a middle-aged woman saying farewell to her aging parents as Tremblay unravels her ties to them.
