This series is loosely based on real events.
Montreal, 1954. Rumour has it there is a black market in Quebec for illegitimate babies. Led by the provincial police, a special squad is formed. Very quickly, Edgar McCoy and his team discover an underground organization that sells infants and whose network stretches all the way to the United States.
At the same time in Tadoussac, the life of young Gabrielle Hébert is turned upside down. Having become an underage mother, she is disowned by her family and marginalised by society. Gabrielle has no choice but to exile herself in Montreal where she finds shelter at Hôpital de la Rédemption.
Motivated by the hope of finding her love and above all keeping her child, Gabrielle runs away from the shelter. Despite herself, she winds up in the middle of a large-scale investigation that will shed light on a heinous baby-trafficking scheme.
