A tremendous downpour hits Montreal and a spectacular sinkhole opens up in Percival Molson Stadium in the middle of a football game. The stadium is evacuated, and a few hours later, it becomes a protected archaeological site. Centuries of history are revealed beneath the field. Mohawk archaeologist Baptiste Asigny begins investigating, and he will discover the multitude of generations who have occupied this land, each with buried secrets.
Several generations of people from different cultures have occupied this place and rubbed shoulders, sometimes in violence. 750 years of history reside in this land.
It may even be the place where Jacques Cartier spoke with the Iroquois from the small village of Hochelaga, which would soon be known as Montreal.
