This program was produced for the Canadian television series, “Inside Stories” that showcased stories from Canada’s diverse multicultural communities. Then/Now is the story of a young Japanese-Canadian woman who is torn between her father’s desire for her to take over the family flower shop business and her dreams of being a writer. This show went through extensive censorship from the network due to the inclusion of an on- screen lesbian kiss during prime time television.
