This documentary tells the story of the Council for the protection of patients, which celebrates its 40 years. Created in 1974 to enforce the rights of users of the health network and improve the quality of the services they receive. CPM remains active to protect the dignity of the sick, disabled or elderly people, often forgotten by the health system. Claude Brunet, who died in 1988, helped by Monique Germain-Magny, Lucien Roussel and Raymond Dumais, are the founders of the CPM. Many archive clips of the CPM are supported by testimony from Paul G. Brunet, Raymond Dumais, Michèle Lamquin-Éthier, Pierre Bruneau, Jean Cournoyer, Mario Dumont and Alain Brunet.
