When Leito meets his beautiful new neighbor, Miriam, he is determined to make her his. To conquer Miriam’s heart, Leito, a young, ambitious Haitian with a complicated past, has to face Miriam’s possessive boyfriend as well as her protective mother. Miriam’s mother, Mona, deems Leito unworthy of her only child, based on Leito’s lifestyle and obviously limited financial means.
During a random vehicle stop, Jean-Baptiste, a young cop and Leito’s best friend, makes an important arrest, which not only grants him a likely promotion in the Haitian Police Department, but places him at the top of a gang’s most-wanted list. In the overcrowded city of Port-au-Prince, the threat is very real, especially since corrupt cops have ties with gang members. Leito finds himself caught up in this escalating situation, though meanwhile, his courtship of Miriam weighs increasingly on his mind. Known as a “player” in his relationships with the ladies, Leito has, to his own surprise, been hooked by this new beauty in town. However, an unexpected event that will set the fate of his relationship with Miriam is awaiting him.
