For my final project in an audio and filmmaking class, we had to interview someone and bring out a narrative through the things they wanted to talk about. I approached my dad and asked what he would be interested in talking about. When he brought up some stories about the hardships his family went through immigrating to Canada, I knew this was the story we needed to unravel.
