This very informative and revealing documentary 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 author, 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 regards to some of the issues the country faces to this day.
