Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
The culture of a Caribbean island drenched in sun and rhythmic music, and the calypso sounds themselves are the main focus of this thinly plotted drama about a racially mixed family. Popular activities like cockfights and festival occasions interrupt the story of Resy (Sally Neal), the attractive mulatto whose family is intent on marrying her off to a Caucasian man. For even on these Caribbean islands, a lighter skin color is unfortunately associated with the upper classes.
