Baggage opens the stage and turns the spotlight on newly arrived teenage immigrants studying in High School in Montreal, Quebec. Through drama workshops, theatre production and deeply personal interviews, the film gives voice to their stories of immigration and integration. Their accounts move between an “elsewhere” and a “before” to become a ”here and now”. With a wisdom well beyond their years that will leave no one unmoved, these students share poignant narratives about their journeys with compelling emotion and a disarming level of authenticity.
