Canada's Next Generation


Three people use their experiences surviving decades of drug use and sex work to help their community. Told over five years, their surprising stories reveal a world often misunderstood.

Our take

We shift to documentary in the latest in our Canadian series: Hugh Gibson’s deeply humane portrait of the social challenges in Toronto. It gives voice to its subjects with intimacy and bracing honesty, offering a rare ground-level view of the struggle to create new paths for precarious lives.
