Synopsis

our place takes us to Jerk Pork Castle in Scarborough— “if you don’t know about it, you better be about it and ask about it!”— where newcomers Andrea and Niesha work in exchange for cash under the table. As the two scrape out a life in Canada, they must also navigate their status as undocumented workers.

This funny, keenly observant script unveils the lives of these undocumented Caribbean workers who go to desperate lengths to get Canadian  citizenship — a moving, timely story of those rendered invisible in a ‘welcoming’ Canada. (passemuraille.ca)
