Babe, I Hate to Go

Babe, I Hate to Go

Goodbyes may be a ritual for Delroy, but this one he cannot accept. A migrant worker from Jamaica, he has spent 6 months each year for the past 30 years working in the tobacco fields of southwestern Ontario in order to provide for his wife and 6 children. When he is diagnosed with late-stage melanoma (skin cancer), he is unable to accept the news, and continues to work as usual, hiding the truth from his family.
