A rainstorm hits Montreal, causing a spectacular sinkhole at the Percival Molson Stadium during a football game. Play is interrupted. In a few hours, the stadium becomes a protected archeological site and centuries of history are revealed beneath our feet. Mohawk archeologist Baptiste Asigny begins excavations leading to the discovery of multiple generations who have occupied this place and their buried secrets. From then on, Baptiste is determined to find what he has always sought: the trace of the village of Hochelaga, where his Iroquois ancestors greeted Jacques Cartier in October 1535. HOCHELAGA, TERRE DES ÂMES (HOCHELAGA, LAND OF SOULS) recounts 750 years of history contained in just one place where the souls from all eras and all cultures meet up despite the centuries separating them.
