Canadians know Toronto as a welcoming, diverse metropolis, but this was not always the case.  A little-known dark chapter in the city’s history took place one warm summer evening in August of 1933 when a riot fueled by xenophobic attitudes towards Jewish and Italian immigrants took locals by surprise.  This Italian-language documentary follows the events of the Christie Pits Riot, explores what led up to it and how it changed Toronto “the Good” forever.
