Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

This disturbing drama is based on a real incident that occurred in Quebec during 1970. It is the story of the Liberation Front of Quebec took hostages, and the provincial government called for martial law resulting in the arrest of 450 people who were taken in and imprisoned without warrants and for no apparent reason. Much of the film centers on the cruelty inflicted upon these victims. Mental torture was one of the techniques employed.
