May 2012 - Film about a broad anti-capitalist movement around the issue of university fees in Québec, Canada. University fees are supposed to increase by 75 percent by 2017.

Because of the massive protests the minister of education resigned, and emergency laws were passed. Every evening, not just students but also the marginalized parts of society participate in the demonstrations. "La Gréve est etudiante, la lutte est populaire" is the movement's slogan.
