Léo Major was the Québécois Rambo. During a reconnaissance mission on D-Day, he captured a German armored vehicle by himself. Later on, he single-handedly captured 93 German soldiers during the Battle of Scheldt. He has been wounded and ordered back to Canada two times, but he escaped the hospital both times and went back to fight instead. With some help from the Dutch Resistance, Major liberated the town of Zwolle where an avenue is dedicated to him. In the Korean War, he and his 18 men captured Hil 355 and held the enemy (14.000 Chinese soldiers) off throughout the night. The film dedicated to his life is accompanied by its director to the CineFest.
The Canadian director was bort in 1969 in Québec.
