Montreal, 1954. A rumor runs, saying a black market of illegitimate babies would exist in the Quebec region. A special squad is formed and quickly, Edgar McCoy and his team find an illegal organisation which sells newborns and expands to the United-States. At the same time, in Tadoussac, the life of the young Gabrielle Hébert flips upside-down when she gets pregnant without being married. She went into exile in Montreal where she finds refuge at the hospital of the Redemption.
