Family MotelDVD - 2008
Headstrong Ayan, a refugee from Somalia, has big dreams. New to Canada, she 'll show anyone she can provide for her family. Still, its difficult to keep it all together. On top of the soaring rent, her daughters, 16-year-old Nasrah and 13-year-old Leila, need braces. And even working two jobs as a cleaner, it's tough to find enough money to send to her anxious husband and two sons still stuck in East Africa. Ayan's confidence is shaken when she is unexpectedly evicted for late payment of rent. Ayan and her daughters are exiled to the city's tattered hinterland among other homeless families, hookers and unsettled souls. A true survivor, she tries to rebuild from within her lonely motel room.
