Synopsis >

Teddy (James Purefoy) has come to the impoverished Caribbean nation of Haiti with his partner, Philip (Jesse L. Martin), to try and solve an almost-hopeless food shortage. Philip, who was born in Haiti but left as a teenager, is locking horns with a powerful island senator named Jean Beauvais who also happens to be Philip'?s estranged brother. Philip wants to help Haiti; but Jean wants Haiti to help itself. Common ground between the brothers is marred by years of resentment and mistrust.
