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.

Continuing seventeen years after Arcand's The Decline of the American Empire, the film centres on an exploration of the characters first met in the original film and their children, newly introduced. The older generation are still largely social-democrats and proponents of Quebec nationalism, but both political and economic developments after the “Quiet Revolution” of the 1960s, as well as their own aging, make their left-wing stance seem somewhat anachronistic.

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.

Eight intellectual friends - four men and four women from the Department of History at the Université de Montréal - prepare to have dinner together. The ensuing conversations range from their professional lives to politics, but primarily concern their sexual exploits. The group has plans to gather at a secluded house for dinner. While the four men prepare the food and reflect on their promiscuity, the four women discuss their own affairs at a nearby gym. At the dinner table, conflicts soon arise when Dominique reveals that she herself has had affairs with two of the men there, one of whom is married to Louise (also present).
