This inept drama, which takes place in Montreal, begins in 1944 with a religious parade. The film then flashes forward to 1955 and gets to the meat of the story. Jennifer Dale, a young woman with stern parents (her mother is Quebecois, her father a Scot), is involved with Winston Rekert.

He's a rough sort who gets her pregnant and is then arrested for petty theft. He is sentenced to prison, and Dale marries Gabriel Arcand. Ten years later Rekert returns and nearly destroys their happiness, but when he sees how happy his son is, Rekert decides to fade away. This is a poorly written

and badly directed film, showing no sense for dramatic construction. At times the film flirts with meaningful drama, but the awful production qualities always prevent it. Despite the mediocre filmmaking, the acting isn't too bad. This cast clearly deserved better material. Though set in the past,

the English-French cultural conflict that acts as the backdrop for the film mirrors the heightened tension and calls for secession in the province of Quebec at the time the film was made.
