The Inheritance

Top of page

This film charts the early stirrings of nationalism in Québec, its gradual growth and its culmination in the Québec Referendum as seen through the careers of Daniel Johnson and his two sons. Daniel Jr., Vice-president of Power Corporation and a Liberal, and Pierre-Marc, former Minister of Labour in the Parti Québécois government, unlike their father, have had to make the painful choice between Québec and Canada. As well as throwing light on the growing complexity of the Québec political scene, this film provides some interesting insights into the family life of a politician.
