A true Story
16 January 1999 | by (Santiago, Dominican Republic) – See all my reviews

Although there were previous attempts to produce movies in the Dominican Republic, this is the one that made that dream come true. This is the first movie completely made by dominicans and this movie open the minds of independent dominican film makers. Even now the country's film industry is in it's beginnings and some good films have been made but, definitively, this is the best dominican movie ever done.

Based on a true story, this movie recreate the death of tens of men and women while they were trying to flee the country on a merchant boat running away from the realities of their poverty world. A world that is still there.
