Prayer for a lost mitten - Lost items at the transit office reveal deeper personal losses

As night falls and snow blankets Montreal, people queue up at the transit company's lost and found office. Each person searches for a missing item, but as they reflect, these lost objects come to symbolize deeper, more profound losses in their lives.

This insightful documentary weaves these stories into a poignant tapestry of human connection and the things we yearn to find.
