A beautifully told story, full of poignancy, intrigue, drama, and even suspense. The film tells the story of three different sets of Haitian immigrants living in New York City, as they struggle to come to grips with their current environment, while still living in the shadow of their recent past. Though the film derives much of its power from the uniqueness and specificity of its setting, the themes are nonetheless universal, or nearly so. The director shows a deep understanding and empathy for the characters and their predicament, and it is a pleasure to see characters who are neither condescended to, nor needlessly flattered. The acting is naturalistic and moving.
