This is a slick and well acted,but hideous black drama shot overseas about a 14 year old black girl with a dope fiend/prostitute mother.This is also just another black movie drama that is totally DISRESPECTFUL to fathers in the form of not really acknowledging them at all,never mind giving a real explanation for why they are not there for their high risk children they left in extreme poverty,BUT I DIGRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice little story of daughter meets estranged mother who has her difficulties in meeting the challenges of everyday living. Probably my first exposure to the lives of Bermudans. Nice portrayal of surrogate mom by Guyanese/American actress CCH Pounder.
