Storyline

The Front de liberation du Quebec was a Canadian terrorist organization which staged a series of attacks in the late 1960's which culminated in the kidnappings of Pierre Laporte, Quebec's minister of culture, and James Cross, the British Consul in Montreal, in October of 1970. This film traces those events and the political and social reactions and circumstances surrounding them. Written by Leftguard
