After three years of research and over three months filming on location, Nicolas Alexandre Tremblay and Régis Coussot paint an accurate portrait of the current situation for these Haitian migrants on Dominican soil. Narrated by Haitian poet and playwright Jean-Claude Martineau, the film takes us to the heart of this human tragedy.
