Summary

Aruba is the story of an 11-year-old boy who searches for a way out of his home life, where he witnesses domestic violence and drug abuse. At school, he is the target of bullying. His only escape is through his imagination. His dreams of escape are visualized on a postcard of a faraway place. It is a story about the things we do to survive. It is a story about salvation. Aruba is a reflection of a part of our Canadian landscape too often ignored. It's about the children of a new Canada - children of parents from different worlds, different cultures. It is a story meant to bridge understanding. A new perspective into the Canadian culture - reflecting the disconnection of urban poverty and race from the mainstream.
