This video charts the experiences of 15 newcomer youth from the English-speaking Caribbean. They discuss reuniting with their parents and their experiences at school. The video provides immigrant-settlement workers, teachers and the police with a better understanding of what it is like to be young, from the Caribbean, and new to the country. The video is approximately 30 minutes in length. An accompanying booklet is also available.

The booklet to accompany the video can be viewed online at
