A look at the folks who will fix your broken items for free at the Repair Café in Toronto.

Meet people who have come to the Repair Cafe in Toronto to get their beloved broken items fixed: Ishi and her blender; Rodney and his CD player; Nancy and her family bible; Smith and his singing robotic turtle; ShirleyAnne and her vibrating hairbrush. Paired with expert Fixers, these perfect strangers will try to resurrect their broken items. Will they succeed, or will their items be tossed into the landfill? FIXED! challenges our throw-away culture in a light-hearted and empowering way.
