The documentary highlights the difficult lives of migrant agricultural workers here in Canada. Learn more about the Canadian government's labour program, the Temporary Foreign Worker Program, and how migrant workers are working minimum wages and living in difficult conditions just to make ends meet. There's a half hour Q&A session after the film.

December 6th was declared by Canada's Parliament as the  National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women  following the murder of 14 women at L'Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal on this day in 1989.  Remembering this horrific event has become the basis of recognizing and supporting action against widespread violence committed against women in our society.
