Mathieu Collette, a passionate blacksmith, renovates an abandoned heritage building belonging to the City of Montreal to create a forge school. Sixteen years later, after making this place a center of transmission of living heritage of international reputation, Mathieu is threatened with eviction for obscure administrative reasons, the year of the 375th anniversary of Montreal. What could well justify putting on the street one of the last blacksmiths in Quebec to carry out an unprecedented social and heritage project? Shot for several years, this documentary recounts the Forges de MontrAal's fight against the disappearance of part of our collective memory.
