This film follows the story of the most well-known modern Haitian musician, Michael Brun, as he takes it upon himself to show his fellow countrymen that Haiti is worth fighting for. He channels his music to bring people together, to fuel the change that’s occurring in the country. Through the power of music, Haiti can once again become The Pearl of the Antilles.
