Haiti is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere. Food shortages have become so severe that people have had to resort to eating ‘mud' pies. Three quarters of a million were made homeless by recent hurricanes and everywhere, young and old live in fear of being kidnapped, tortured and brutally murdered. The documentary produced by Caroline Bleahen and presented by Jim Fahy, takes its title from a remark made by Fr. Rick as he stacked his truck with the bodies of men, women and children. The bodies were a tiny fraction of those that pile up each week in the morgue of the main hospital in the capital, Port-au-Prince. Their families cannot afford to bury them, but every Thursday Fr. Rick and a team of volunteers take them to a valley ten kilometers from the city and lay them to rest.
