A Haitian teenager becomes obsessed with learning Japanese, refuses to speak French to his mother and doesn’t want to interact with his peers. Nothing has been the same since his father’s sudden death during the 2010 earthquake. Then he discovers he has a special gift. In the meantime, an old fisherman who lives nearby is worried about his beloved wife. She suffers from a mysterious disease that can only be cured by the sea. But how? A little way away, the female character of an author with writer’s block comes to life. She too has a lot to solve still on this disaster-prone Caribbean island. The emphasis in this minimalist, neo-realist fairy tale – primarily shot using natural light – is on the strength of humans and nature. And on the sudden instances of magic that can help the desperate.
