Hockey Mom
When the Syrian war tore her life apart, Fatma bravely seized the opportunity to build a new life for herself on her own terms. Twenty days after her family arrived in Toronto from a refugee camp, Fatma fulfilled a years-long wish: she left her husband. For two years, Fatma and her son, Majed, have been living with their sponsors in the Annex, a friendly neighbourhood in downtown Toronto. On the surface, their new life in Canada seems fine, but soon problems with Majed arise and Fatma must make difficult choices. This documentary is a character study of one immigrant’s experience, but illustrates the challenges for anyone who must start anew.
