LE SIÈGE

  • Broadcaster

    Radio-Canada (Canada)

The small one-industry town of Cole Creek is in a state of shock. The local plastics plant is pulling up stakes, leaving 1,000 people out of work and the small town on the verge of disappearing altogether. Canadian Smiths-Thompson, the company that owns the plant, asks employees to stay on another month to help dismantle the production equipment so it can be shipped to the new facility in Saskatoon.

Led by their very passive union president, Mario Cormier (Gilles Renaud), the employees stage a symbolic one-day strike, despite being generally resigned to their fate. No one is really expecting anything to come of it. At least, not until impulsive Alexis Godin (Alexandre Goyette) and his gang take advantage of the situation to sneak into the company offices toting a bag full of weapons.

What was supposed to be an uneventful one-day demonstration turns into a high-tension hostage-taking.
