Six stories intersect explosively on the front lines of the world's refugee crises: At the Canada-U.S. border crossing, four Honduran boys are found dead in a produce truck, and Jerry Fischer, a committed refugee lawyer suddenly finds himself involved in an Afghani woman's refugee claim which forces him to choose between his family, his work, and his life. Nina Wade, an ambitious right-wing politician, goes down in flames in a federal by-election and is parachuted into the Refugee Board, ... Written by Anonymous

A convincing tract for Canadian Immigration Department
13 January 2004 | by ram-30See all my reviews

Like the main character Jery Fisher(Nicholas Campbell), this mini-series does it's very best to convince us that immigrants deserve the right to come to Canada as it is likely a better alternative to their previous home. The clients that Fisher supports are not saints either: one is a rude chauvinist; another associates with Mid East terrorists. Still, Fisher, the soft toughie(like Campbell's TV alter ego Dominic DaVinci) supports them at the risk of his own social life and well being. What I was amazed with was the casting which took Canadian actors from all genres: Dan Joffre(a co-star with Campbell on the dramatic series DAVINCI'S INQUEST) is a comedic actor by nature, Cara Pifko is a light romantic actress( as in the TV series OUR HERO and her new, equally impressive series THIS IS WONDERLAND), and Eugene Lipinski is a serious dramatic actor. To round things off, we have the well rounded R.H. Thompson who's becoming the mini-series king, Canada's answer to Richard Chamberlain. The mini-series that this most reminds me of is ROOTS as they share the same two continents and similar themes. The scene where Moses, the African teacher, is fleeing his oppressors after being cut on the foot is reminiscent of Kunta Kinte. Overall, the series is overlong but enlightening.
