Un grand documentaire sur le Québec et un éditorial cinématographique virulent à l’occasion du référendum de mai 1980 sur la souveraineté-association. Couvrant les événements, le cinéaste sort la défaite référendaire du Parti québécois de son contexte local et la confronte au jugement de l'Histoire, en la soumettant au feu d'une critique acerbe sous la forme de citations extraites de l'œuvre de Nicolas Machiavel (magnifiquement interprété par Jean-Pierre Ronfard).

The film begins when Lobo is a 6-week old pup, identical to his brothers and sisters. While his father, El Feroz is out hunting for meat to feed the family, Lobo follows his nose to his first adventure, and takes a tumble down the cliff his family dens in. As soon as he manages to climb back up, a cougar appears on the scene. Things look grim for the wolves, until "a wild card" shows up; cattlemen riding by below the wolves' den spot the cougar, and shoot it as it prepares to pounce on the wolves. The narrator makes it clear that the cattlemen do not favor the wolves: Lobo is only spared because he's out of sight. When Lobo's father returns to the den soon after the incident, he smells both the cougar and the cattlemen, and decides to pick up and move house to avoid them.

Le film raconte les aventures d'un jeune chien malamute nommé Nikki et son gentil maître, Andre Dupas. Ils voyagent en canoë dans les Rocheuses canadiennes. Quand Nikki rencontre Neewa, un ourson ayant perdu sa mère, Andre attache les deux animaux ensemble, les jette dans le canoë et fonce dans les rapides. Quand les deux animaux se retrouvent séparés d'Andre, l'improbable duo doit apprendre à survivre dans le monde sauvage. Ce qui est initialement une relation de haine et d'incompatibilité se transforme en une relation de compromis et d'amitié entre espèces. Les deux animaux toujours attachés rencontrent des loups, des lynx, des gloutons, des grizzly et beaucoup d'autres animaux sauvages, photographiés de façon brillante et donnent aux spectateurs un sens réel de vie dans la nature. Quand Neewa commence sa longue hibernation, Nikki entame une chasse désespérée pour la nourriture. Le parfum de l'Homme le mène non pas à l'amical Andre Dupas, mais à Jacques LeBeau un trappeur qui essaye d'abord de le prendre dans un piège puis de l'empoisonner. Mais voyant la vigueur de Nikki, et après l'avoir capturé il le forme comme un chien de combat.
