Documenting the often tragic journey of Haitians in the US and abroad for human justice, the monologues cover Vodun cosmology, Haitian history, culture and US humanitarian imperialism in Haiti. It's a musical memoir full of coming of age stories of a woman raised African-American-Haitian in the US, who returns to her parents' homeland and cannot undo the U-turn. The work testifies to the tragic plight of the Black nation of Haitians surviving within a hostile American Mediterranean.
