Sixteen years after she was found lifeless on a highway, Audrey wakes up from her coma!

Seventeen-year-old Audrey goes into a coma when she is found unconscious on a small town road in the middle of the night. Sixteen years later, the impossible happens: she wakes up. Suddenly, she is in her thirties, and everything has changed around her (and her friends and family are no exception). Audrey will have to relearn how to talk, count, walk, eat… everything that used to be “normal”. But she will have the help of her – now divorced and overwhelmed – parents André and Mireille, her jealous brother Clément, her loving stepfather Marcel and her feisty stepsister Sarah.

On his long road to recovery, his memory will gradually recover, revealing, like pieces of a puzzle, what really happened that fateful night.

As old conflicts arise, Audrey’s magical perspective of the world may be the key to reconcile everyone. Audrey reconnects with Cynthia, her teenage best friend. Memories of her first job, shared dreams, and high school highlights, will arrive without warning. As well as the memory of the night before the accident, putting his friendship with Cynthia to the test.

Audrey’s Back is the first Canadian series selected in the CANNESERIES Long Form competition. A little gem that addresses disability with delicacy and humor, through the journey of a lovely family.
