Balwin is one of 25 000 immigrants who integrate each year into the Quebec community. In this fiction-documentary, the whole process of Balwin's integration at Sainte-Cécile school is reconstructed. From interviews gathered from children, teachers and the school principal, Mrs. Louise Laurin, we discover why this neighbourhood is so efficient and well-liked.
