This initial effort by Jean-Pierre Lefebvre finds some dissident youths from Quebec training for the upcoming "revolution." They inhabit a run-down house in the country and try to prepare themselves for guerilla warfare. The inept rebels end up killing each other off in this political and social satire. A brief animated segment details the history of Canada. By the time this feature appeared at the 1968 Berlin Film Festival, Lefebvre has added four more films to his credit. His efforts brought him acclaim as one of the country's best young filmmakers.
