In this documentary, striking political science students concerned with the democratization of their university occupy the offices of the Political Science Department at McGill University. The issue: greater student control over the hiring of faculty. The film crew lives with the students and follows their action through confusion, argument, dissent, and negotiations with faculty. The result is an intimate view of a student political action.

    What a bunch of petty whiners! They are all probably the same age as my dad (over 60). Are they proud of themselves? Millions of people around the world live in a far worse situation than they do. These "students" should be embarrassed at how ungrateful they were.
