En 1975, le boxeur poids lourd Chuck Wepner affronte sur le ring le champion de la même catégorie, Mohamed Ali. Alors que tout le monde pense qu'il va se ridiculiser, Chuck tient quasiment les 15 rounds. Il gagne le respect du public et devient une célébrité. D'autant plus que son histoire a inspiré un jeune acteur alors inconnu, Sylvester Stallone, qui écrit alors le scénario d'un futur film à succès, Rocky. Chuck, le fêtard, va cependant tomber dans une spirale qui l'éloigne de sa femme Phyl et de sa fille Kimberley.

Stéphane est un militant social, formé dans le domaine du théâtre. Christophe est un ingénieur au chômage. Les deux amis sont colocataires. Ils s’engagent tous deux dans la création d’un documentaire sur l’emploi. Christophe accepte que son ami filme ses démarches jusqu’à ce qu’il trouve du travail. L’entreprise éprouvera sérieusement leur amitié. La caméra vidéo de Stéphane suit Christophe à chaque entrevue d’embauche, dans les séminaires de formation à la recherche d’emploi et dans les rencontres avec les conseillers en placement. Stéphane obtient les moyens financiers de s’adjoindre une équipe technique. Plus l’espoir de Christophe diminue, plus le tournage s’étire en longueur en n’épargnant aucune sphère de sa vie de chômeur. Son flirt avec une caissière, ses loisirs et même son sommeil, tout est filmé. Pour Stéphane, dorénavant intéressé par les congédiements massifs, la sous-traitance et les intérêts égoïstes des compagnies, le projet limité au début devient un tremplin politique qui finit par nuire à la recherche d’emploi de son ami.

The story begins with a boy hanging himself in a tree, for fun. Léon is a 10-year-old kid, with a tendency to vandalize, lie, prank, steal or even attempt suicide. He is not necessarily suicidal, but to escape punishments for his other deeds, he uses the suicide trick to get out of blame. When his parents were making fighting, he sets fire to the bed, simply to make them stop. The story circulates around the evolving love of Léon, and another girl that lives next door, whose name is Lea. She is regularly beaten by her uncle, and dreams of a normal childhood, specifically showing a desire for Barbie dolls. Their love proves to be difficult however, as at first Leon cannot admit that he likes her, but when he confesses his love, Lea throws him off by replying that she too loves herself. Léon's mother moves away when she and her husband have had a big argument, and leaves the next day for Greece. Léon and his brother struggle to accept this, and try several different ways to get in touch with her, such as running away to Greece, ringing her, or trying to find her home address. Leon follows Lea's plan to go to Greece but really Lea wants to look for her father. Lea runs off to look for her father but her father moved over a year ago, according to the woman living in the house where he once lived. Leon and Lea return but Leon's father is furious and Leon jumps off a high ledge to attempt suicide but fails. One day, a woman that resembles Léons mother arrives from Greece, and delivers both messages and gifts from her. She is most probably a daughter. She also secretly gives Léon's brother the telephone number for her mother, and he telephones her many times in the dead of night; leaving expensive bills for Léon (the chronic liar) to take blame for. The story ends with Léon going to a local bowling alley where he often goes to spend time, but this time he places his head where the bowling ball hits the pins, and awaits the impact of the ball. Though he wakes up, and realizes that life may not be for him, but he is made for life.

In Montreal, an elementary school teacher hangs herself. Bashir Lazhar, an Algerian immigrant, then offers his services to replace her, claiming to have taught in his home country. Desperate to fill the position, the principal takes him at his word and gives him the job. He gets to know his students despite the cultural gap evident from the very first day of class and despite his difficulty adapting to the school system's constraints. As the children try to move on from their former teacher's suicide, nobody at the school is aware of Bashir's painful past, or his precarious status as a refugee. His wife, who was a teacher and writer, died along with the couple's daughter and son in an arson attack. The murderers were angered by her last book, in which she pointed a finger at those responsible for the country's reconciliation, which had led to the liberation of many perpetrators of huge crimes. The film goes on to explore Bashir's relationships with the students and faculty, and how the students come to grips with their former teacher's suicide. One student, Alice, writes an assignment on the death of their teacher, revealing the deep pain and confusion felt by each of the students.

Physical therapist Dian Fossey (Sigourney Weaver) is inspired by the anthropologist Louis Leakey (Iain Cuthbertson) to devote her life to the study of primates. To this end, she writes ceaselessly to him for a job cataloguing and studying the rare mountain gorillas of Africa. With some effort, she manages to convince Leakey of her conviction and devotion to the cause at hand after personally approaching him following a lecture in Louisville, Kentucky, on his part in 1966. Thereafter, Fossey embarks into the Congo, where Leakey and his foundation equip her with the necessary equipment and housing to achieve personal contact with the gorillas, and introduce her to a local animal tracker, Sembagare (John Omirah Miluwi), to assist her in her endeavors. Settling deep in the jungle, Fossey and Sembagare manage to locate a troop of gorillas, but they are ultimately displaced by the events of the Congo Crisis after being forcibly evicted from their research site by Congolese soldiers, who accuse Fossey of being a foreign spy and agitator.
