Development, history, and colonialism collide when a seemingly simple aid project spirals out of control in Haiti. Inspired by an NPR story about the 2010 Haiti earthquake, headstrong American Tim Myers travels to Haiti to help build a new school, ultimately clashing with Haitian leader Anselme Saimplice, forcing a reckoning on privilege and power. This film combines expert interviews that help frame the larger context with an unflinching close-up of the situation on the ground.
