a film by Julie Rohart
Accompanied by his deaf mother, Carvin, a dreamy and creative teenager, embarks on a road trip across Canada to win a sculpture contest. The trip would go smoothly if Carvin didn’t keep a secret from his mother: he wants to take advantage of the trip to unravel the mystery surrounding his father’s disappearance. His investigation will lead him to discover the troubled relationship that his father had with a young singer, Sweet Dolly. But the past does not stir without consequences and the duo will risk losing the contest… and their lives.
Sweet Dolly was born from the desire to offer quality entertainment cinema, combining great spectacle and authorial ambition. At once an initiation story, an offbeat road movie and a genre film about the genre, this story is unlike any other production.
