Summary:
How do you reconcile the desire to be a commercial success with the desire to perform in your native tongue and to be true to the political and language rights your grandparents struggled for? These are the decisions a young Catalan band faces as they become increasingly successful. Toni, Montse and Marc know that they are lucky to have the freedom today to sing in their native Catalan. They are aware of the years of repression their parents and grandparents suffered so that they are free to choose whether to perform in Catalan or Spanish. As musicians they have to resolve where their obligations lie? Should they perform in the language which will produce the most sales and is it their job or the government's responsibility to promote the Catalan Language? As they examine these questions and contemplate their future This Song is our Song brings home to its audience the question of language as a political issue.
