Percé, 1969. Three ardent leftist militants—brothers Paul and Jacques Rose and their friend Francis Simard—arrive from Montreal and rent a shack for the summer. They start up a café that they hope will be a gathering place to encourage local workers to feel free to talk about claiming their rights and their cultural identity. Bernard Lortie, the son of Gaspé fisherman whose boat has been sold and who finds himself unemployed, joins them, despite the reservations of his fiancée.

Disturbed by the social action of these engaged citizens and by the presence of their hippie customers, authorities and traders in the area who serve wealthy tourists from the States and Ontario, try a variety of ways to drive them out.
