Goofs

When Marva tells Dunston her story at the mall, she mentions she had to quit nursing school. However, she cringed when she had to empty a potty or seeing goats pee in her uncle's house. It's very unlikely that a person so squeamish about excrements would want to become a nurse in the first place. See more »

A voice for Caribbean people
18 November 2013 | by AnandiC_WSee all my reviews

What is most amazing about this film is the subject matter. Who wants to hear about deportees? Our government ships them out of our tidy little society and it is not our problem any more. But from the opening scenes we realize that they are real people too. What separates them from us, is that they made a mistake and the law applies unfavourably and unequally to them.

The three deportees have their own stories, with one thing in common. A bad choice leads to no choices. They are no-class citizens in their land of birth and have to live at the outskirts of society just to survive day to day. The narratives are gripping and realistic. Even good choices don't always lead to happy endings.

A couple comments on filming on location in T&T: I am familiar with both Trinidad and Jamaica and the former does a decent stand-in for the latter. There are times when a location is obvious to me (the Mall, the market, the airport, North Coast) and I feel a little discombobulated with the Jamaican accents, but this should not be an issue with a general audience :) It was a real treat to have a cast with Caribbean roots, Tatyana Ali and Fefe Dobson in particular will give you goosebumps in their respective scenes.
