These are the men of Edgecliff, a farm just outside Toronto in cold, unforgiving Canada. For ten months of the year, they pick tobacco from dawn to dusk, living in a ramshackle cabin with broken-down furniture and questionable plumbing. They all talk about leaving the Program, of taking the chance of living illegally in Canada. Yet year after year they get back on that plane to Barbados, unprepared for the changes that may have occurred in their absence. Weaving Bajan folklore into the fabric of his tale, Cecil Foster once again celebrates the resilience of the human spirit with a deeply moving glimpse into a world that few of us will ever encounter.
