Description:In the middle of the night, deep in the Quebec countryside, an angry Black teenager smashes a statue of a Black fisherman. Cédulie and her intellectually challenged son come out to investigate, armed with a rifle. They are joined by a neighbour and then a group of inebriated partygoers, curious to see what's wrong. No one can agree on what should be done with the Black teen. Fuelled by alcohol, the incident turns tragic. Cédulie is shot to death with her own rifle and the Black teenager is wounded by a cop. In the morning, investigators take contradictory statements from five witnesses who tell the story.
