For the first time, Toronto filmmaker Warren P. Sonoda is tapping into his Japanese-Canadian roots with the crime movie “Things I Do For Money.”

The film follows two brothers who accidentally steal a large sum of money and get themselves involved in Hamilton’s criminal underworld.

This is the first-ever crime film made in Canada by a Japanese-Canadian, which also stars four Japanese-Canadians, and has been sold domestically to Canada and the U.S.

“This is a movie that should not exist but it does, because some really talented people worked really hard to make it happen,” Sonoda told toronto.com.

Well-known for his work on shows such as the Trailer Park Boys, This Hour Has 22 Minutes and Murdoch Mysteries, Sonoda has been nominated for two Emmy awards and a British Academy Film award.
