“I grew up in a country of war, difficulties and
problems – yet I miss that country...the accidents
I was facing.” With these words, Dr. Sherzai
emphasizes life’s sum total: accident. By incident
of birth or happenstance, refugee claimants must
start anew, constructing some semblance of life
from their situation. Half a Chance presents
images of refugee experiences in Toronto, which
relates fright, flight, fortitude and, on
occasion, the finality of home found.
