Ali is a fiercely intelligent and educated man. However, as a political refugee from Afghanistan, the only jobs he can find are washing dishes and back breaking, minimum wage factory work.
His only happiness is seeing his wife and kids for a few minutes before he goes to work his second job.
More than anything Ali wants to provide for his family, he promised them a better life, and one way or another he intends to keep that promise even if it means assisting The Employer with espionage, drug smuggling, bank heists, and other criminal activities.
After losing everything in the war in their home country, SAMIRA and her husband Ali moved to Canada to ensure a better and safer future for the their son Malik.
She is a hard working, strong woman who has witnessed her fair share of pain and death in Afghanistan. As a loving and devoted mother as well as a caring and concerned wife, she will stop at nothing to keep her family together.
