The Point is the name commonly given to one of Montreal’s poorest neighborhoods, Point St. Charles. In this film, the stories of 35 kids from the Point, gathered at scripting workshops, are woven into a narrative structure by screenwriters, and the kids play themselves in front of the camera.
The result is a drama about one fated weekend when the teenagers’ lives unexpectedly intersect to solve a mystery that has haunted their neighborhood for years.
Screenplay: Owen Coughlan
