Follow the lives of two Tamil Canadians as they get caught in the drama. Daniel is a schoolteacher and he's lived here a long time. All he wants is to be accepted, to be successful. Niranjan is a newcomer, a teenaged refugee who cant find succour in Canadian society. He turns to crime. History surges around them as their paths cross, as clashes between people, cultures, and ideologies shape their lives. Can the Canadian Dream and the Tamil Dream truly coexist? If a country can be judged by how it treats its refugees, its immigrants, how will Canada fare? A story that repeats itself time and again, The Tamil Dream is the age old tale of two cultures that share spaces but cant understand each other.
