Insularia Islas en Red


François leaves Haiti by sailboat for the United States, leaving behind his wife, Mirlande, who is six months pregnant. She has to wait ten days for news of her husband. And now, ten years later, still without news, the woman who is still waiting offers a sacrifice to Agwe, the deity of the oceans.
