During maple sugar season, renowned songwriter and poet Gilles Vigneault and storyteller Fred Pellerin meet in the countryside to share their passion for maple syrup and the people who produce it. Their conversation lays the foundation for a choral reflection, enriched by the recollections of professional and amateur harvesters, a historian, a novelist, an actor and a chef.
Their intersecting statements illustrate the spot that maple sugar occupies in Quebec mythology and illuminates its social, cultural and political importance in the past, the present and the future of the country.
