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.
