The December Man is based on the historical event in December 1989, at the École Polytechnique in Montréal where fourteen female engineering students were fatally shot by an armed intruder, who objected to women trying to enter what he regarded as a male profession. The intruder prevented the male engineering students from intervening to stop these murders. In the play, the character Jean Fournier is one of the male students, and he is burdened by survivor guilt. Jean and his parents, Benoit and Kathleen, work hard to face this tragedy, and to help each other to recover from its effects on them as a family.
