This comedy sketch show explores joint custody of children and being a part-time parent both from a reality and fantasy perspective. Through a series of audacious yet absurd situations featuring zany characters, the show depicts the extremes, regrets, emotions, challenges, mistakes, unforeseen events, victories and defeats that come with being a single parent. It is also an opportunity to laugh at those often difficult situations and to engage in some form of group therapy.

There are only about 400 black whales (including merely 100 females) left in the world right now. This documentary film follows Julien Robichaud, a man on a quest to determine whether or not his generation will ultimately be responsible for the extinction of black whales. Over the past few years, this species has considerably decreased as a result of boating accidents in Canada, where most black whales are found. Julien exposes the challenges and realities inherent to the fight to save black whales, in this documentary that takes place both on land and underwater.
For the first time since the days of dog sleds, a passage by land has been created, going from the heart of the gold rush all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. Nadia Campbell and Vincent Poirier, two friends who have travelled the country from East to West, now set their sights on the people of the North. Along the way, they meet aboriginal people and newcomers who help them learn the rules of the North. With their open and friendly approach, and guided by an unquenchable curiosity, both friends travel many kilometres to visit communities all along their path. They learn about the traditional practices of the three main people who have lived on this territory for centuries, people who spend their life trying to tame the wilderness of the Far North. Whether they are flying above the spectacular rock formations of Mount Monolith, horseback riding in the vast expanse of the arctic tundra, or navigating the majestic Mackenzie Delta, Nadia and Vincent’s northern expedition brings them in contact with people who remain active, true and authentic.
Makinium tells the story of Finn, Aïsha and Vic, three children who happen to be the descendants of interplanetary settlers. They live in Mécanopolis, a metal city located on a distant planet. Our trio is aware that the Majestueux, the most powerful people in the galaxy, have a secret base at the heart of the only forest on the planet. This forest is inhabited by Yanel, a mysterious creature and the guardian of makinium, a powerful mineral the Majestueux would like to get their hands on. In fact, they would do anything to get makinium. They might even wipe out Mécanopolis and its citizens, should they pose a threat to their search! Hag, the Majestueux’s leader, sends a wanted notice to Mécanopolis. Cassiopée, a dangerous Majestueuse, is apparently hiding in the city. If she doesn’t surrender, the consequences will be terrible! Problem is, Cassiopée is Vic’s mother. Having now become a nice person, this Majestueuse has built an underground network of people whose purpose is to protect makinium and overthrow Hag! She must be protected! However, Hag keeps doing the craziest things in his efforts to find Cassiopée in Mécanopolis, thus turning our three heroes’ lives upside down. They will do everything they can to thwart the Majestueux’s plans, which puts them in situations that are as dangerous as they are funny! However, things take a turn for the worse: in the forest, Hag’s daughter Ly has found the makinium! Thankfully, Yanel goes to extremes to scare her away – and it works! Phew! Ly is afraid of Yanel, and she’s trying to find a way to rid him of his powers so she can grab the makinium. Ly is a brilliant woman. It’s only a matter of time before she finds a solution. Yanel needs the help of our dynamic trio to stop her from getting her way! With Hag’s mean – yet sometimes laughable – sanctions, his son Baz’s tomfoolery as he finds himself stuck on Mécanopolis, and their risky mission with Yanel, our three heroes will go through an emotional rollercoaster. After all, their city, their planet and their friends are in more danger than ever!

13-year-old Charlie Montpetit, a worthy representative of Generation Z, has a tendency to only do what she wants to do or what is absolutely necessary – and not too complicated. However, when she gets excited about a project or when its issues are important to her, she’ll get the entire world to help her achieve her goal! When her 7th grade social sciences, history and geography teacher asks the students in her classroom to develop a project related to the municipal elections in their small town, Charlie doesn’t hesitate. With the help of her friends Novak and Céleste, she undertakes to mobilize the town’s citizens in opposing the draining of Lac aux Patineuses, a wild and beautiful body of water. The lake is a place where people young and old come to fish and swim in the summer, and ice skate in the winter. Town mayor Lionel Pigeon has promised that he will fill in what he calls “a bug nest”, to build a big, modern and expensive regional retail and sports complex with lots of parking and… a pool and a skating rink! His goal is to attract big names in retail (as well as NHL teams during training season), thus doubling the regional weight of Val-des-Coeurs. Our young trio considers this the dumbest idea of the decade. After all, the lake is already a “natural sports complex that’s way more fun – and free!” More so than her teammates, Charlie turns a school project into her personal mission. She passionately insists on saving and promoting the lake. She rejects the idea that people will need to take their car to go shopping, instead of strolling on the town’s outdated but charming commercial street as they’ve always done. Is this really a good time to have such a project in mind, when climate change and threats to the environment demand concrete measures?
