Determined to reconcile with the mother who abandoned her when she was just a toddler, a Bahamian adolescent boards a local mail boat and sets sail for Nassau in director Maria Govan's intimate family drama. Rain has lived a sheltered life on Ragged Island, but now the death of her grandmother has forced her to get out and explore the world on her own. Upon arriving in Nassau the young girl is overwhelmed by the sights of the big city, and soon finds her idealistic illusions shattered when she witnesses firsthand just how deviant and destructive her mother's lifestyle has truly become. Stranded in a an unfamiliar environment that fills her with dread and confronted by a mother she has never known, Rain searches deep within herself to summon the strength needed to find her own place in the world.

Brilliant Hidden Gem
21 July 2018 | by kingrl-71573See all my reviews

This film is brilliant.. Not going to out any spoilers. I just want to say that this world is insane. Unless a film has a major monopoly playing company pushing it people will ignore it and wont dig. So we see the equivalent to cinematic cubic circoniums winning awards and making millions of dollars. People forget that to find all genuine gems on the planet, one must dig. All the real jewels on this planet must be excavated. Wait....na I change my mind. The world being the way it is makes you appreciate genuine gems more when you are able to behold. Kinda like true love. True love is like a gem that was formed in the earth that God created, not in some laboratory. Wake up world, stop thirting for lab manufactured soulless high gloss artificial gems.
