A finely crafted report on Haiti's social, economic and political conditions. The director collects impressions in several interviews. A radio announcer, open to the discussion, disappears after criticizing the Duvallier system. Quebeckers on holiday talk about their relationships with the inhabitants. A priest who supports and helps the population in its daily struggle for survival and hygiene, describes their conditions of life and their attitude based on fatalism and resignation that prevents the progress of the economy and pushes the government to keep the people in poverty. This sociological look at the dynamic between cultures and at the haitian culture is a lucid and critical reading.
