Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
With Creole dialogue and local volunteer actors, director Christian Lara adds authenticity and native humor to this otherwise routine drama about a West Indies grandmother in difficult straits. The grandmother suddenly finds herself in charge of her grandchildren after her son dies in a car crash. Her daughter-in-law is critically injured in the same accident and is hospitalized. Grandma needs to make some money in a hurry and opts for going in on a farming collective. Social and economic conditions threaten to ruin even this venture until the daughter-in-law recuperates and starts to help. Racial biases complicate everything from the beginning.
