In any small town, you quickly know who your neighbours are, but in a trailer park in Chase, British Columbia, two neighbours discovered a spiritual connection that spanned continents and time, miraculously reuniting them fifty years after their first encounter.

Ayaa: A Hero's Journey is a story of serendipity and karma, exploring the amazing twists of fate that connect Albert Thomas, an Aboriginal World War II veteran, and Anneke Mercks-Sayer, a dutch immigrant and World War II survivor. Through interviews, recreations, photos and archival footage, we journey through the history of one man's giving nature, his unwavering generosity, and the ultimate reward of one person's heartfelt thanks.
