Chinese people arrived on the Western shores of Canada many generations ago. Since then, they have formed unique relations and shared many experiences with this land's indigenous people. Cedar and Bamboo explores those relationships through the lives of four people of Chinese and Aboriginal roots. Set in the stunning land of British Columbia and the bustling multicultural city of Vancouver, their stories reveal the difficult circumstances of aboriginal people and early Chinese immigrants that both led to these unions but also challenged these families to stay as a whole.
