Searching for her roots, Asha returns to her family’s home on a rural coconut plantation in Trinidad. Despite racial taboos, her aunt’s admonitions, political turmoil and mysterious hauntings from ancestral spirits, Asha embarks on a forbidden relationship with Roger, a young fisherman who shares her desire to look beyond the physical world.
With strong performances and a sense of wonder that blurs the lines between real and fantastic, superstition and truth, living and dead, Vashti Anderson’s directorial debut is a love story to the rich culture of a changing Trinidad.
