6pm Reception, 7pm Show – Q&A Immediately Following

Marty had a heart condition that used to make her faint every day. Adele was one of the world’s first cardiac alert service dogs, and she stopped Marty from fainting at all. They were the perfect team. They were soulmates. Adele could literally sense the beating of Marty’s heart. But nothing can last forever, and when Adele gets too old to continue working, Marty must figure out how to let go of her best friend and find a new partner who can take over the job of protecting her heart. With Adele by her side, Marty went from being unable to walk around the block without passing out, to leading an adventurous, joy-filled life as a wife and mother. She doesn’t want to go back to how it was before Adele, but going forward is just as scary.

Shortly before his passing at the age of 86, influential gardener and horticulturalist Frank Cabot recounts his personal quest for perfection at Les Quatre Vents, his twenty-acre English style garden and summer estate that was opened to a film crew for the first time ever. Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Charlevoix County in Quebec, Les Quatre Vents has become one of the world’s foremost private gardens. Created over three generations, it is an enchanted place of beauty and surprise, a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century. Through the words of Cabot and his family, and with the participation of gardening experts and writers, the film looks back at this remarkable man’s personal story and the artistic philosophy that gave birth to one of the greatest gardens in the world.
