The realities facing migrants in Canada are stories that need to be told. This particular documentary gives particular attention to the personal stories of transnational migrant women--many of them who are mothers--working in masculinized industries such as agriculture. While in Canada they undergo great travails to support their families back home, they also have a unique opportunity to dream new lives amidst hardship.
