In April 2002, the Noranda mine in the small community of Murdochville shut down after having served for decades as the town’s economic lifeline. The mine’s closure had a dramatic impact on the residents of the town. Among them: Roger Fortin, stricken with the industrial disease berylliosis; Stéphane Boulay, whose family has been torn apart; and Marc Minville, the mayor of Murdochville, who feels betrayed by both the government and the mining company. Through their stories, this documentary offers a broader look at the slow transformation of this small town on Quebec’s Gaspé peninsula.
