Filmmaker Karen Cho travels from Montreal to Vancouver to uncover stories from the last survivors of the Chinese Head Tax and Exclusion Act, a set of laws imposed to single out the Chinese as unwanted immigrants to Canada from 1885 to 1947. Through a combination of history, poetry and raw emotion, this documentary sheds light on an era that shaped the identity of generations.

    This documentary short is very dated now. In 2006, the Chinese community in Canada received redress as they ought to (in my opinion). And there have been some excellent feature films and tv shows that have been done to showcase the Chinese Canadian history and the political movement that succeeded in the end. Just do a search online. Because as someone born in Canada, I was very unaware and thankful all these works have helped shed light on a subject I bet many Canadians did not know.

    This is an important film. I'm ashamed of the way Canada treated hard working, dedicated people who gave so much build this country.

    I think it was very unfair how they treated the chinese people! At least now it has changed.

    we feel sorry for the people who had to live throught this. Even though Canada doesn't have very much money to spare, the chinese deserve their money back for the torture they had to go through.
