A high energy Caribbean fairy tale musical the whole family will enjoy. A young peasant girl (SuCh, the award-winning actress and R&B singer who played Celie in The Color Purple) rescues and falls in love with a rich boy (Carter Edward Smith) from the other side of the island. Guided by the gods of earth, water and love, the naïve girl finds herself torn between two very different worlds.? What is she willing to sacrifice in pursuit of a dream?
