Private Project


The USA and Haiti. Thrilling New York City and scary Port-au-Prince.
Crowds out in the streets waiting for a miracle and inner city dwellers without any hope for a change.

There is a twenty year old guy stuck in the endless stream of people between the two worlds. The two worlds meet inside him.

“I’m six ten and a half. If I wasn’t tall I would not be here. God gave it to me for a reason. So I think.”

He grew up in Haiti but turned up in the USA because he got lucky. He goes to college and plays basketball. He is promised a bright future as an NBA star.
He got a chance.

“Life is just like a movie” — he says.

Your path.
Your coming and going.
When and where? Who and what will you be?
Not up to you. Not your choice.
