ABOUT THE FILM
Carlos, Trudi, Jennifer, Zaki and Alvaro face challenges as they attempt to get refugee status in Canada due to fear of homophobic violence in their homelands Canada has been a haven of acceptance, but that is shamefully changing as immigration rules are tightened. Even when hope is offered, members of the decision-making board can hold mental stereotypes which make them question the orientation of “normal-looking” applicants. Lawyers and support groups coach them on strategies and requirements and try to keep up morale despite homesickness and the potential end of the new life they are trying to build.
