You will be in imaginary scenes that build up to your arrival. In the husband’s anticipation, he imagines an ideal life with you in Canada. In a nouvelle-vague-esque montage you will be roaming around this promise land in an eternal state of love. You will also act in scenes where the husband hallucinates you present in his reality (in nature) and almost haunting him.
