In the Pointe St. Charles neighbourhood of Montreal in the early 1970s, citizen involvement gave rise to a network of community groups. Faced with a difficult economic and social situation, welfare recipients and low-income workers, both French- and English-speaking, pooled their energies to improve their situation. By alternating first-person accounts from four fomrer activists with archival footage of projects in 1970, this documentary paints a living picture of the exemplary involvement of the citizens of Pointe St. Charles. This neighbourhood has survived thanks to solidarity and activism which must constantly be renewed.
