They come from all over and from every background, but they all have the same dream: improve their lot in life. At the Canadian Forces Leadership and Recruit School, they have 12 weeks to turn themselves into soldiers through intense training, despite the sweat and mud. The documentary series LES RECRUES has exclusive access to the school and its ranks. The production follows six recruits and presents their physical, mental and emotional struggles. For three months, some will shine and reach unexpected success, while others will crack under pressure and quit.
