In this moving documentary, which is both celebratory and critical, five vibrant Latin American women now living in Canada unearth the strategies they have used to create a home and an identity from their experiences of political violence. They detail their personal search for lives free from injustice and explore the boundaries of freedom in Canadian society. Images of war in Central America and scenes of multicultural life in Canada add poignancy to the energy and thought their struggles require. This production is a testament to the power of memories and friendships.
