On 2 March, 2004, Bernard Lord's Conservative government announces that the hospital in Caraquet, NB will be converted to a community health centre. Considering the government's decision unfair, the people of the region rally to save the health care services to which they feel entitled. Despite their year-and-a-half long struggle, the Hôpital de l'Enfant-Jésus is closed. In recording the chronology of the events, René Blanchar plunges into the heart of the action with an urgent need to speak out against injustice.
