      The Night Shift:
      A Documentary

      In Canada we used to complain of a brain drain to the United States. Today
      we suffer from a massive case of brain haemorrhaging. Foreign trained
      professionals often languish in dead-end jobs after having been told by our
      immigration officials that their talents are needed here. At the same time
      Canada continues to face a shortage of skilled workers.

      The Night Shift is the story of Malik Khan a foreign trained professional
      who left his newlywed bride, his family and business to establish a better
      life in Canada. Malik is determined to achieve the Canadian dream. He's even
      enrolled in a special course designed in order to better market himself in
      Canada. Among Malik's classmates are a number of Ph.D.'s who toil away in
      survival jobs instead of making contributions in their own fields.

      Canada's economy loses between two and three billion dollars each year as a
      result of this haemorrhaging of talent. Will Malik fulfill his dream or will
      he become another depressed statistic? The Night Shift is a documentary film
      in three languages -English, Hindi and Urdu - and is produced, directed,
      written and edited by Jawad Jafry.
