The film follows the lives of 3 children in Toronto’s low-income East End as they become friends over the course of a school year. The children find community, compassion, and resilience in an unlikely place – a drop-in family reading program. Run by compassionate childhood educator Ms Hina, the program’s goal is to increase literacy on a provincial level. But amidst acute poverty and rampant drug use, Ms. Hina soon realizes the neighborhood’s people would be more interested in learning – if only they had full stomachs.
