Husband and wife Laura Amelia Guzmán and Israel Cárdenas’ poignant tale follows an educated Haitian immigrant as he travels through the Dominican Republic in search of work and a meaning to his life. It was filmed on location in Santo Domingo and Port-au-Prince before the January 12th earthquake, but also includes some takes from after the tragedy. Based on the real story of Jean Remy Genty, the film is beautifully photographed and vividly captures the day to day lives of Haitian immigrants in the Dominican Republic.
