With a searing contrast between an island struggling under the threats of crime, migration, and global warming and an unforgettable love story, it provides an emotionally rewarding experience in which these contemporary issues are given fresh poignancy and meaning. A haunting sequence of narratives builds to tell a compelling tale of murder, psychological mayhem, and love while gleaming with Caribbean spirituality.
