In May 1994, the Ontario Human Rights Commission brought down a landmark decision: they agreed with seven black nurses that their employer, Northwestern General Hospital in Toronto, had allowed both systemic and individual acts of racism at the hospital. The film focuses on the story of the seven nurses and puts this present story in historical context by tracing the long and arduous struggle for equality among black nurses in Canada.
