This very informative movie explores the Haitian society of the late 19th century and early 20th by focusing on the tormented life of one of Haiti's most important authors, Jacques Roumain, who was also a prominent political figure. In his writings, Roumain raised vivid questions that were and still are very much relevant in regard to some of the issues the country faces today.
