In 2003, Carole Laganière presented seven young people aged eight to 12, growing up in the poor Montreal neighborhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve in the documentary EAST END KIDS. At that time, the children dreamed of a bright future. Eight years later, the filmmaker returns to see what point they are on in their journeys. Marianne Racine found his father. Maxime Desjardins-Tremblay combines study and work as a TV and movie actor. Having spent time in youth centers and reform school, Maxime Proulx-Roy and Jean-Roch Beauregard are still trying to find out who they are and what they want to be. Valérie Allard dreams of becoming a social worker. Samantha Goyer finished her studies and Vanessa Dumont tries to overcome her dark thoughts. Each in their own way, they prove that the place where you come from doesn't necessarily predetermine your future.
