Rate this:
Emma lives on the gray, lonely side of a wall, unable to go to the beautiful other side. After Emma's parents disappear, she is sent to live with her aunt Lily, who does not approve of Emma's dream of becoming an artist. Everything changes when a strange boat captain arrives, and Emma leaves her world behind. Following Emma's arrival at Halifax's Pier 21 and the discovery of her voice through art, The Land Beyond the Wall is a beautiful allegory that uses magical realism to confront the hard realities of immigration and the universal struggle of finding one's voice and one's place in the world.
