The character focus of Essex County shifts from Lester Paineau to elderly Lou Lebeuf; decrepit and senile, Lou's story is told through a series of flashbacks to his days playing for a semi=professional Toronto hockey team. Along with his brother Vince, Lou finds success on the ice; however, not everything between these two siblings is as amorous as it seems. Interspersed with these events is Lou's interactions with his nurse, Anne. it serves as a reflection of getting old, and regretting mistakes that have taken far too long to be realized.
