Storyline

Passion: of people for the land and sea, of corporations for riches, and of men and women for each other. Vicente and Abigail run a banana plantation in Limon Province, on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Abigail's half-sister Irene, about whom Abigail knew nothing, comes to introduce herself. She is 21 and beautiful. Meanwhile, banana prices fall, threatening the plantation's finances. An oil company works with the government to get off-shore drilling rights, over local objection. Vicente is at the center of each cross-current. Will he fall for Irene, can he save the plantation, will he sell out to corporate offers? What of the coast: can its beauty be saved?

OK as a made-for-TV movie on Lifetime
6 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and it's director Esteban Ramirez introduced the film and took Q&A after. The four lead actors in the roles of Vicente, Abigail, Irene and Jackson are all good but only Cuca Escribano as Abigail stands out as the best of the four. The character of Jackson doesn't have much to do in the movie and I wondered why it was even in the film. The rest of the acting by the other characters in this movie is nothing special and the characters are all kind of cartoonish. The film has a good look to it though despite being shot in a brief five weeks. It had some elements of a good story but wasn't enough to be a film. A made-for-TV movie maybe but not a theatrical release. The final scene was a little far fetched concerning everything that went on in the film. I did think it was a good movie on the low end of good but I wouldn't see it twice. I would rate it a 6.0 out of a possible 10.
