  Description     The film  
Several Canadians of Italian descent discuss their trouble integrating into Canada and Québec. One of them, Marco Micone, is a separatist playwright and journalist who does not feel accepted as a Québécois. He says that multiculturalism is considered in Québec to be a federal strategy for diminishing the singular importance of francophone Québécois culture. He says the term "Interculturalisme" is preferred by Québec francophones.
