This feature documentary gives voice to various English-speaking groups in Montréal and other places in Québec as they react to the October Crisis of 1970, when Québec nationalism took a violent turn. A British diplomat had been kidnapped, a Québec cabinet minister murdered. The troops were brought in as a safeguard. This film is a vigorous reflection of the discussions and analyses of the situation that went on wherever people gathered, voicing attitudes and fears, sympathies and concerns.

    I am always annoyed by ignorant radicals who demand "social justice" yet have no concept of law and proper authority. The first business executive who speaks in the last segment makes the best point: When a revolution succeeds, someone must build and manage the new structure. To paraphrase Alexander Solzhenitsyn all revolutions are false because they perpetuate the evil that was supposed to be eliminated.
