Meet the Mercer family, dealing with the emotional and political decisions that the characters must come to as Newfoundland joins Confederation on April Fool’s Day of 1949. As recent immigrants to Toronto, the members of the Mercer family see this event both as a  new future and as a loss of Newfoundland’s culture and independence. This Canadian Classic will be playing over the 70th Anniversary of this historical event.
