Various Montrealers, including Harry Gulkin (producer of Lies My Father Told Me), the late philanthropist Maxwell Cummings, and poet / writer Irving Layton, offer up reminiscences about their city during the turbulent war years. Anti-Semitism, relations with French-Canadians, Communism, the Holocaust and general day-to-day existence, are among the subjects brought to life. Terrific archival footage adds to this fascinating memoir.
