Synopsis

Documentaire racontant un chapitre significatif de l'histoire du Québec : le développement des régions. Le cinéaste revisite l'héritage du cinéma québécois tourné en Abitibi, marchant dans les traces de Pierre Perrault. Au coeur de la crise économique des années 1930, le gouvernement organise le transport de plus de 80 000 colons pour fonder un pays neuf sur les territoires vierges de l'Abitibi. Toutefois, plusieurs quitteront ces terres durement défrichées, cherchant un meilleur sort à la ville. Mais de génération en génération, la famille Lalancette persiste à construire l'avenir sur sa terre. Denys Desjardins les suit dans leur quotidien.
