For decades, Assam Hadhad ran the second-largest chocolate factory in the Middle East. When it was destroyed in a bombing, Hadhad and his family fled war-torn Damascus, spent years in a Lebanese refugee camp and were granted asylum in Nova Scotia. A chocolatier at heart, Hadhad hoped to resume his profession once he was settled in his new country, but he spoke no English and had no resources. That’s when the community around him stepped in. In this short doc, Hadhad steps out in the Nova Scotia wilderness for his first camping trip with his Nova Scotian friend.
