ABOUT THE FILM

Haitians locked in the hold of a fishing vessel are being smuggled to the US. If they get sick, they are thrown overboard. Seventeen-year-old Sandrine must hide the fact that her brother Etienne is sick in order to save his life.

This film was made as part of the Commonwealth Short s project, a capacity building scheme to give emerging writers/directors the opportunity to make a film which highlights issues affecting them and their communities. The initiative is a partnership between Commonwealth Writers, B3 Media and CBA Worldview.
