Four children in Montréal stage their own rebellion as the FLQ Crisis swirls around them in October 1970.
12-year old Manon promises her younger brother, Mimi, that they will stay together, despite their difficult family circumstances and the ominous signs of being put into foster care. During the height of Quebec's FLQ Crisis in 1970, they stage their own rebellion by kidnapping an elderly woman and hiding her in the country, aided by their two cousins. What results is a heartwarming and unflinching view of the tumultuous times as seen through the eyes of children.
Filmed in Montréal and directed by renowned French-Canadian director Luc Picard, the film is based on a story by Québécoise writer Nicole Belanger.
