On December 6, 1989, a lone gunman walked into Montréal's École Polytechnique, a post-secondary institution focusing primarily in engineering, and began a shooting massacre. This event and its aftermath are shown from the perspective of three people. The first is the shooter himself, who blamed the problems in his life on who he considered feminists, such as female engineering students, who were his primary targets. This event was the culmination of a seven year plan, which had a self-defined end. The second is female mechanical engineering student Valérie, who earlier that day had an interview for her dream internship, working on an aerospace project.

Gamil Rodrigue Liass Gharbi was the birth name of Marc Lepine
I have to mention what the movie reviews (and news media) ignored. Mark Lepine was born Gamil Rodrigue Liass Gharbi. His father was Algerian. It is weird and creepy that Canada's multicultural media (and its movie productions) ignore this bit of information.
