They all left, following the prevailing winds, and went to start their lives anew, elsewhere. Thousands of stories shown in thousands of faces, but all of these people share a common desire - to find some meaning to their life in a place that is not their home country.

The documentary series Terre d'échanges portrays very different destinies. On the one hand we watch a Quebecer start a new life abroad, and on the other an immigrant setting up home here in Quebec. As part of this special theme, the two travellers on the program speak about their respective daily lives sparing no personal detail.

The series of 12 programs is a voyage of discovery about 24 people, including 12 Quebecers, as well as 12 countries! Argentina, Laos, Haiti, and Sweden feature amongst the intended stop-off points along this international journey, and at the same time these expatriates share their thoughts on Quebec and its inhabitants with us.
