The film is Haitian-born film maker Jonas Nosile's gripping look into both Haiti's past and the state of the Haitian soul today. It also gives its audience a better understanding of the lack of infrastructure and political instability that has left Haiti so helpless and annihilated following the quake. The film traces Haitian history from its early successful struggles for independence through to its contemporary - less victorious - battles with poverty. Nosile poses tough questions about the degree of Haitian's responsibility for their dilemma. Will this island nation find a way to break with the legacy of its tragic past? Will the resilient spirit of her people be enough to overcome the obstacles and catastrophes facing the country today? The answers may surprise its audience. Written by Anonymous See less
