Title

Kafou

Days after the 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince Haiti, disparate lives intertwine with a diversity of Haitians and expats thrown together in the aftermath. A savvy business woman struggles to rebuild her father's company while her witty motorcycle taxi driver tests his moral compass in the face of new responsibilities; A disenchanted U.S. government official implements policies directly impacting the community, amidst tense office conflicts. A young quirky girl comes of age while recovering from trauma, and an eager Christian missionary redefines "family" in an orphanage. Identity politics and egos collide as they climb over the rubble of chaos to survive.
