  Description     The film  
Eva Smith came to Canada under the West Indian Domestic Scheme in 1955. She discusses the employment conditions for the workers who had entered under this scheme. The importance of community and church leadership had been emphasized by her upbringing, so she brought these values with her. She mentored children and developed programs about Black heritage in her free time.
