This short film is part of the Canadian Spectrum Shorts Program.

Jo is the fierce, self-assured protagonist of this profile of a working-class hero. She embraces the troubles of her past while forging an unapologetic path forward, guided by uncompromising principles and a deep love for only two people: her daughter Karine and singer Diane Dufresne. Mariam Zaidi
