A merry band of artists discovers an abandoned shed, empty and lifeless, on a Montreal street ... a street where day-to-day reality meets the worlds of imagination and fantasy. With dreams of breathing new life into the place, they embark on the project together, step by step, colluding and combining their efforts, laughter and conflicts.
