From Port-au-Prince to Paris by way of Montreal, New York and Saint Malo, The gentle drifting of a Haitian child introduces us to one of Quebec's most charismatic writers and filmmakers, Dany Laferrière. The film touches on his exile from Haiti in 1976, his first novel released nearly 25 years ago, his admiration for Haitain writer Frankétienne, and the importance of the Brooklyn Bridge in his life. A portrait of a fascinating storyteller traced with sensitivity and humour.
