This documentary features an 86-year-old woman with an incredible memory and who has not lost her gusto or humour with age. She offers a contemporary look at Quebec history from the turn of the century to the period referred to as the Grande Noirceur [The Great Darkness]. Feminist, pacifist, union activist, communist and proud of her Jewish ancestry, Léa Roback was front and centre during those years frought with social upheaval: anti-Semitism, the roaring twenties in Montreal and Berlin, the first women's labour struggles, the Duplessis regime and the cold war. In short, she casts a unique look at a rapidly changing society from which emerged the Quiet Revolution.
