The massive immigration of Hong Kong Chinese has reshaped the face of Vancouver. The Third Heaven gives us a glimpse inside this influential but little-known community. Prejudices fall by the wayside as we discover the community's way of life and the vital role it plays in the Canadian and world economy through a moving, intimate portrait of the Lam family, who arrived here in 1991. The Third Heaven shows us that the cohesion of the Chinese diaspora is not only based on business but on strong, long-standing cultural and family ties.
