Year of the Unicorn moves between Canada and France, where Vittorio, a successful artist in his fifties, seeks inspiration in the country's extraordinary art and culture-and release from a paralyzing obsession with the enigmatic Farah, a married woman.

In Paris, Vittorio continues to yearn for Farah as he struggles to accept her idealization of platonic love as a superior emotion and the only kind she will accept between them despite his desire.

At the famous Musée de Cluny, Vittorio recognizes his own longing in the bedazzled gaze of the unicorn depicted in a series of tapestries entitled The Lady and the Unicorn, and returns to Canada determined to confront his own Lady, to bare his soul and insist she make a decision.
