In 2049 the poor are confined to an island off the mainland of Toronto renamed The Burn. Ti-Jeanne, a reluctant priestess, must resurrect Caribbean spirits and survive the possession ritual that killed her mother or her people will die.
Sharon Lewis says, “As an alumni of the CaribbeanTales Incubator it is a true honor to be able to participate in the media launch of the CaribbeanTales Film Festival that is a showcase and supporter of the wealth of storytelling talent that sprouts from the Caribbean and the diaspora”.
