Passage - directed by Kareem Mortimer
A twenty-year-old Haitian woman, Sandrine and her thirteen-year-old brother Etienne, are being transported from Haiti to the Bahamas in the hold of a dilapidated wooden vessel, filled with several other immigrants in search of a better life.
Auntie is a middle-aged seamstress and respected caregiver in her rural Barbadian community. 12-year-old Kera is her latest ward and a special child to whom she has grown uncharacteristically close. Seven years after Kera's mother emigrates to England in search of a better life, Auntie is confronted with the day she long dreaded when the plane ticket arrives that will reunite Kera with her mom.
