Synopsis

Klas Batalo, Giutizia, Tumulto and Ordine Nuovo, four twenty-somethings from Québec, reject the world in which they live. Three years after the collapse of the “Maple Spring”protest movement, they resort to a form of vandalism that gradually leads them closer to terrorism. But their revolutionary avant-garde is far from society’ s prevailing aspirations and threatens to blow up in their faces. *Catalan première
