About the Movie

October 1970, in Montreal. After the kidnapping of British diplomat James Cross, followed a week later by the kidnapping of Quebec minister Pierre Laporte and, under the guise of waging war against terrorist groups, the Canadian Parliament passes the War Measures Act. The Police and the Army unleashed by this law try to break-up popular groups in the Province of Quebec. More than 400 people are arrested for what appears to be their social activities. No charges are ever filed against them. This docu-drama, awarded a major prize at Cannes Film Festival, in 1975, tells the story of these people.
