In the aftermath of the 1989 Montreal Massacre, Benoit and Kathleen do everything they can to help their beloved son cope his guilt and rage... but Jean's young life becomes unglued. Using humour and the humdrum of everyday life, Murphy intuitively moves backwards in time to the fateful day when Jean, the only ray of hope in this working-class family, escaped the massacre... or thought he did. This searing drama on courage, heroism and despair explores the long private shadow that public violence casts.
