Overview

Alone in her Winnipeg nursing home, Libya receives an unexpected visitor from Barbados. Past repression resurfaces, until the tragedy that shaped her life spills from her soul. A rich story so vivid with the island, you can see Libya’s legs flying through the cane fields, taste the bakes she’s cooked up in her grandmother’s cast iron, and feel the swell of the ripe and sticky breadfruit.
