Rodrigue Jean makes his feature debut with this bleak tale about a quartet of down-and-out 20-somethings in a blue-collar community in francophone New Brunswick. Steph (David La Haye) and his buddy Piston (Martin Desgagne) are out of jobs thanks to a strike at the local sawmill. To earn some money and pass the time, they engage in a little illegal free-marketeering and revive their band. To compound their troubles, Steph's older girlfriend Rose (Louise Portal) is growing tired of their relationship, while Pistin is having troubles with his ex-wife Marie-Lou (Marie-Jo Therio). Later, their friend Charles (Patrice Godin) returns from the big city to have the fond memories of his hometown dashed. This film was screen at the 1999 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
