René Lévesque is arguably the most influential politician in the history of 20th century Canadian politics. This mini series shows the gradual evolution of his belief in the sovereignty of the province of Quebec and his unwavering commitment to protect minority rights. A passionate man, Lévesque’s personal life was full of complications and contradictions; this fierce advocate of social justice was also an absent father and husband. His legacy includes the nationalization of electricity, social reform, and the founding of the Parti Quebecois.
