Despite the drama surrounding her family's immigration, Antigone has adapted well to North American life. With her sister Ismene, her brothers Eteocles and Polynices, and her grandmother Menoeceus, the teen lives a modest but relatively quiet life in a working-class Montreal neighbourhood. Tragedy again strikes the family when Antigone's older brother, Eteocles, is wrongfully gunned down by police during the arrest of their brother Polynices, a small-time dealer. With one brother dead and the other in jail and threatened with expulsion to his country of origin, the family is more divided than ever. Antigone, despite her youth, motivated by her sense of duty towards her family, and fuelled by the memory she cherishes of her dead parents, will defy the law to save what is left of the family. Aided by her sister (even though she does not share Antigone's sense of sacrifice), Antigone decides to help Polynices escape from jail.
