Description

1979 : The International year of the Child… Chantal Dupont, 15 and Maurice Marcil, 14, are on the way home. Crossing the Jacques Cartier Bridge, in Montreal, they are abducted by two men, aged 25. Despite their attempts to flee, they are raped and strangled. Their bodies then thrown from the bridge into the river. The news of these hideous murders shakes the country. Even more schocking : Chantal's parents have forgiven the murderers for their crime. Journalists covering the story are in an uproar : the crime is unforgivable! Forgiveness in an invitation to all viewers to examine the limits of their own morality. A disturbing reflection at the human condition.
