In a school year, three young children in a low-income
neighbourhood in the Scarborough District of Toronto
find the value of passion, friendship and resilience
through an after-school program led by child educator
Ms. Hina. Their family contexts are particularly complicated,
humanly and socially. Scarborough offers a raw
yet empathetic glimpse of a multicultural community
that finds its dignity in unexpected places: a collective
refusal to be fractured by individual challenges and to
come together in kindness and solidarity. The two filmmakers
portray the specific truths of their characters’
daily lives with honesty and precision in their hearts.
