Documentary about Montreal's first political squat. On July 27, 2001, squatters occupy an abandoned building on Overdale Street. The location is symbolic: about 100 renters had been evicted from it 13 years earlier in order to make space for luxury condos that were never built. Relocated to Rachel Street, the squatters take up residence to claim their right to decent housing. They want to raise awareness about the housing crisis. In the midst of a municipal election campaign, the squatting initiative unfolds under intense media scrutiny. The squatters develop an alternative plan, which is gradually subverted by the municipal government.
