Between 1965-1973, over 50,000 Americans made their way to Canada, refusing to participate in the Vietnam War. Today, more than forty years later Canada is faced with another dilemma –
Peace Has No Borders tells a complex story that weaves today's resisters’ personal struggles against the backdrop of political power and demonstrates how a decision of conscience can affect the rest of one's life.
Escaping one battlefield for another, contemporary soldiers of conscience wage a fight to avoid deportation and punishment if returned to the U.S. from Canada.
Peace Has No Borders keeps the story alive for future generations who will face their own decisions in the face of war.
