Product Description:

The Haitian earthquake of 2010  left over a quarter of a million of its citizens dead. Millions are still homeless, hungry and destitute. The country's infrastructure has been destroyed. Although millions of dollars have poured into the country to help it rebuild, much of the money is going to foreign contractors, helping little in reviving the nation's struggling economy. Throngs of thieves, many of whom escaped during the earthquake, are stealing what little the poor have. Child trafficking gangs are an increasing problem. The political situation in the region remains unstable and there is little in the way of protection from a police force. Yet, amidst this tragic situation, some businesses are trying to open. There are orphanages being build to house the children, and families are constructing their own make-shift homes. These are a proud people trying the make the best of what can only be described as a horrible situation. This film takes a look at the country's massive devastation and the resilience of its people. In it, the Justice Minister provides a tour and a closer look at a people who have lost everything, and how they are trying to rebuild with little to start with. Portions of the this documentary have English subtitles.
