He was born in India 1917 but the turmoil of partition forced him to move his family to the new Islamic state of Pakistan. His life changed course again when, as he approached 60, he moved his family to Canada to seek a better life. A devout Muslim, he doted on his six daughters. He  encouraged each of them to pursue higher education. But it was the youngest of his girls who would ultimately test his faith and traditions in his new land.

The documentary on Kazim Jafri was by Maureen Brosnahan in Toronto.
