The film
Governments tend to follow, not lead, when it comes to environmental protection. This view was expressed in this 1975 film, when Canadians were just beginning to become aware of pollution and related problems. Over 30 years later many more people are concerned about the environment. Pressure from concerned citizens is still necessary before governments take action against polluting industries.

Grâce à ses milliers de lacs et de rivières, le Québec constitue un véritable paradis pour les pêcheurs. Aujourd'hui cependant, la pollution de plus en plus répandue des eaux du Québec risque de priver la population de la jouissance de ce sport. Histoire de pêche vient sonner l'alarme et, à l'aide de témoignages choc de diverses personnes concernées par ce problème, tente d'en cerner les responsables afin que s'engage une prise de conscience qui pourrait conduire à des actions afin d'arrêter la dégradation de cette richesse de notre environnement.
