Trop offers us a close-up look at the lives of a group of friends – Isabelle, Manuela, Marc-Antoine, Romain and Samir – who are all in their early thirties. They’re unstable, ambitious, a bit selfish; trying to get ahead in life while preserving their mental health, despite the obstacles that the contemporary world throws in their path. Their routines are thrown off when Isabelle’s sister Anaïs comes to live with her in Montreal. Isabelle has every reason to be glad about this arrival. Then she discovers that Anaïs is afflicted by bipolar disorder, which unbalances her daily existence and has unpredictable effects on her already flamboyant personality. All the characters must confront their psychological frailties, even as the pressures of “normal” life compel them to keep moving forward. Trop is a realistic dramatic comedy that celebrates friendship, sister-love, and the foibles of human nature.
