Français

L’action se déroule avec comme toile de fond une nation aux prises avec de violents crimes homophobes, et présentant une virulente critique de la haine envers les homosexuels inhérente aux sociétés caribéennes.

Ce premier long-métrage de Kareem Mortimer raconte l’histoire de trois individus très différents : Lena, la profondément religieuse et conservatrice femme d’un pasteur secrètement gay ; Romeo, un beau jeune homme noir cachant son orientation sexuelle à sa famille ; et Johnny, un jeune artiste blanc tourmenté à la recherche de lui-même. Les trois se dirigent vers la magnifique île d’Eleuthra, ayant chacun leurs raisons d’échapper aux circonstances de la vie quotidienne. Leurs mondes se croisent rapidement de façon inattendue.

English

Jonny (Johnny Ferro), an awkward painting student, is « banished » by his instructor to the remote island of Eleuthera to focus on his work and find his voice. But first he finds Romeo (Stephen Tyrone Williams), a handsome, self-confident guy who shows Jonny the scenic spots, and a bit more. Romeo’s got a girlfriend, however, as well as a blustery mother who willfully ignores any clue or hint he drops to set her straight.

Meanwhile, Lena (Margaret Laurena Kemp), a pastor’s wife, has also made her way to this distant spot to contemplate her future in relative calm. Tired of her husband spouting high-and-mighty, anti-gay rhetoric at rallies while refusing to own up to the cruelty and contradictions in his private life, Lena has a decision to make.
