Synopsis

In the Cote-des-Neiges region of Montreal, the first stop for many new immigrants, live people of more than 100 nationalities. Two recent arrivals, Marcelo, the sensitive son of Chilean refugees, and Cleo, a shy boy from Haiti, must choose as adults whether to be united by childhood friendship, or divided by race. A seminal statement about multicultural societies. Translated from the French.
