Kevin, a Bahamian fisherman with a gambling addiction, is forced to start smuggling Haitians to Florida to support his family. With debts piling up, a girlfriend on the side, and a dangerous gangster pushing him to take more and more risks, his life spirals out of control.
This very personal story brings the audience into the world of human trafficking in a unique way, and asks difficult questions about what it means to be a good person in a desperate situation.
Beautifully shot entirely on location, this is the largest film project made in the Bahamas to date.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director, Kareem J. Mortimer.
Admittance is for persons aged 18 and over only.
