A compilation of histories of illegal immigrants in Canada, nomadic friends who quickly disappeared into new identities or were forcibly deported. There are around approx. 200.000 illegal immigrants in Canada. This video is just a spark of their constant re-invention of freedom, endurance, and resistance. The last amnesty was in the 1980’s, and the only pathway to legal status is under a Humanitarian & Compassionate application with an estimated 5% success rate..
