Human Cargo
9 January 2005 | by joanne-mcinnesSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this miniseries, it really showed the struggle of the immigration system. It showed the struggle of one man's journey from his village in Africa thru adversity to get to this country (CANADA). It also shows the fear of another refugee of racial profiling. Being a Muslim woman she is treated as a suspect before being proved. Nicholas Campbell is a Canadian favourite as an actor, and his performance is excellent also. This movie was a real eye opener and did not glaze over the truth of what must be every day situations for some refugees. This movie made me appreciate my birthright and citizenship, and want to do more to be more supportive of those new to this country.I recommend it.
