Shot in the months following the 1995 referendum on Quebec independence, this documentary shows Quebecers struggling with the way the debate plays out in their personal lives: families are split, neighbours and co-workers find themselves on opposite sides of the political fence and young people try to come up with new ways to look at the issues. "Never-Endum Referendum" features writer Josh Freed and filmmaker Jacques Godbout. Freed is the Montrealer who first coined the phrase 'never-endum referendum,' and both he and Godbout are well-known moderates on opposite sides of the political fence. Sprinkled throughout the film are the comedic barbs of Montreal troubadours Bowser and Blue.
