With a self-proclaimed feminist prime minister, a cabinet full of female ministers, and gender-neutral toilets everywhere, Canada seems extraordinarily progressive. But how is it possible that the nation has already seen two attacks specifically against women? In the 'Toronto Van Attack' in 2018 ten people lost their lives and sixteen were wounded. The perpetrator stated that he belonged to the 'incels', an online group of deeply frustrated men who blame women for their conceived state of involuntary celibacy. How can this misogyny endure in Canada and what is being done about it?

In this documentary, we walk male feminists in heels and female boxers, but also speak to self-help guru and psychology professor Jordan Peterson, who became known for his criticism of contemporary feminism. Is Canada polarizing?
