  Description     The film  
Angela Williams emigrated from Jamaica to Canada seeking opportunities for herself and for the young daughter who she hopes will join her. In Canada, she is required to do long hours of low-paid domestic work for at least two years. She sees a future for herself as a nurse, nonetheless. Organizations of immigrant and minority women can lend support.
