A film by AJ West. A quick history of Concordia's Grey Nuns Residence and the Grey Nuns Motherhouse. A satirical response to the intended destruction (by some blueprints) of Concordia University's largest downtown green space, and the lingering rumoured plans to construct over the space. This idea (of building on the Grey Nuns green space) had been brought up in meetings discussing the future of Concordia University's real-estate.

A comedic expression on the unclear future of Concordia University's Residence Life and Fine Arts Departments as the space became available and more political in student space discussions on campus in 2010. Notably, the Administration's proposal to the Concordia Student Union in 2011 (with an effort to have the students purchase the Faubourg) included a concept design that integrated the garden into the student space.
