Storyline

Determined to reconcile with the mother who abandoned her when she was just a toddler, a Bahamian adolescent boards a local mail boat and sets sail for Nassau in director Maria Govan's intimate family drama. Rain has lived a sheltered life on Ragged Island, but now the death of her grandmother has forced her to get out and explore the world on her own. Upon arriving in Nassau the young girl is overwhelmed by the sights of the big city, and soon finds her idealistic illusions shattered when she witnesses firsthand just how deviant and destructive her mother's lifestyle has truly become. Stranded in a an unfamiliar environment that fills her with dread and confronted by a mother she has never known, Rain searches deep within herself to summon the strength needed to find her own place in the world.

Must see
8 September 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What an amazing film. It was well acted and well shot and well directed. I was glued to my seat throughout the entire film waiting to see what happened next. I am sure this is not a one off film from an of those involved. Maria Govan really told a story well. Renal Brown was amazing for a first time 14 year old actor, I am sure she will go on to succeed in the future. CCH Pounder was fantastic and inspirational. Nicki Micheaux was so believable and really played the part of a crack addicted mother to perfection. I think they really captured the essence of life in a small island community well.Well done and congrats... I can't wait to see what comes next from Maria Govan.
