Brother Marie-Victorin (Yves Jacques), author of “Laurentian Flora” and founder of Montreal’s Botanical Garden, is bored with heaven and decides to return earth to help Albert Payette (Roy Dupuis) save Quebec’s flora from Transgenia, a multinational that is poisoning the Earth with chemicals. Albert, a former agronomist turned beekeeper, greens the rooftops of Montreal with his nephew Jerry Can (Émile Schneider) and his friends from the punk community. Albert introduces Marie-Victorin to his Honey- Mead which he sells to suburban bourgeois ladies to nance his dream of retiring to idyllic Mingan. Lili de la Rosbil (Juliette Gosselin), an idealist young journalist for the Ras-le-Bol blog and Mathilde Gavreau (Christine Beaulieu), a big-time lawyer, will go to great lengths to save the Mexican agricultural labourers forced to work with Transgenia’s poisonous chemicals. This Eco-Fable concludes on the lush and virgin shores of Mingan where Albert will produce his most Nordic and special Honey Mead yet.
La beauté du monde was also released as Forgotten Flowers.
