Biscuit Soda is a reflection on the daily lives of three youths between the ages of 16 and 20, who are seeking a place for themselves in society. They share with us some of the moments in their lives, most significantly, their aspirations, joys, and sadness, all without allowing the spectator to pity their situations. They are proud, passionate, and more critical that they let on at first glance. "...In this sense, this video becomes an excellent community service document by its reflection and awareness of a complex reality. It brings this reality to light neither with statistics nor the rational of an economic crisis, but with emphasis on the human aspect of the problems and their infernal circle." [Jacqueline Boudreau, youth counsellor, Droit de Passage]
