A feature drama based on an actual incident in 1986, Welcome to Canada chronicles the illegal landing of a boatload of Southeast Asians on Canada's east coast. Rescued from certain death at sea by a group of fishermen, the eight Sri Lankan Tamils find temporary sanctuary in an isolated outport in Newfoundland. In this warm portrayal of an unusual encounter between two cultures worlds apart, director John N. Smith humanizes the immigration statistics.
