Documentary about the playwright Michel Tremblay. The documentary looks at the importance of his plays, including Les Belles-Soeurs, in the emergence of theater slang and Quebecois identity. It also discusses his work as opening the door for women to have a place as theatrical subjects.. The importance of his work in other countries such as Japan and Scotland, is also addressed. These different topics are broached in interviews with Michel Tremblay, the actors who played his roles, the translators of his work, and directors who have adapted it. We also find Rita Lafontaine interpreting various scenes in the character of Nana.
