Dhani’s father left him with little more than a street-food cart in Trinidad and a broken promise for a better life in Canada. When the older man returns one Christmas with a request, old wounds linger — keeping Dhani’s focus on providing for himself and his mother. Poetic dialogue and compelling characters shape this story of the contemporary immigrant experience. –TIFF
