Synopsis: On June 11 and 20, 1981, the Québec Provincial Police (QPP) raided Restigouche Reserve, Québec. This film provides a historical perspective on the issue, and documents, with newsclips, photographs and interviews, the two police raids. An interview with former Québec Minister of Fisheries Lucien Lessard explaining the motives of his decision complements the Micmacs' account of the event. This investigation into the history-making raids is a powerful film that puts justice on trial.
