Summary A grieving teenager discovers he has a superpower, an old fisherman thinks the cure for his ailing wife can be found in the sea, and a muse struggles to exit the story her author is penning, in this magical neorealist fable set in a coastal village Haiti, five years after a devastating earthquake
Haiti, five years after the earthquake.... In a coastal town forgotten by the rest of the world, the sea is gaining ground and although the memories of the great disaster still haunts the villagers, life must go on... Shot in the mist and sunlight, AYITI MON AMOUR is the story of old wounds that need healing in order to begin anew. The flm presents three stories that intertwine, collide and co-exist. There's a coming of age story of an awkward teenage boy (ORPHÉE). Orphée who is currently grieving the loss of his father, is in between ages, in between cultures and in between worlds; fantasy and reality. He has a great fascination for Mangas and is currently teaching himself Japanese. It seems that no one really understands him except for Jaurès the fsherman, his only friend. One day after a freak encounter with an underwater sea creature he develops special electrifying powers, but with power comes certain responsibilities... The world seems to be changing much too rapidly for JAURÈS the old fsherman. These days Jaurès is obsessed with the environmental degradation, the rising temperature of the sea and the drought that is starving his cows. But what pre-occupies Jaurès the most is his beloved wife ODESSA who is bedridden and homesick. Jaurès is determined to do everything to make her well again even if it means putting his own life in peril... Lastly, there's the beautiful mysterious AMA, part muse, part wandering soul but also the main character of a novel by an uninspired WRITER. After 5 years of waiting for him to fnish his masterpiece, she decides to leave him and his story, to fnd her own life
