This documentary about undocumented migrant workers in Canada by Min Sook Lee, a Korean-Canadian filmmaker who won numerous awards with her previous documentary , about migrant Mexican workers in Canada, is like a piece of poetry. The director asks: Why is it that national borders, which are so open to capital and commodities, should be firmly shut against the movement of people who have the inherent right to move? The social actors who determine the meanings of \"documented/undocumented\" or \"legal/illegal\" are not the migrants themselves but the exporting/recipient countries and capitalists. Just as borders are artificial, so are those definitions, which are used to justify economic exploitation and the pursuit of profit. (Billy Choi)
