original and theatrical Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy
tale, The Little Mermaid. Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues
a wealthy boy, Daniel, from the other side of the island and soon
falls in love. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the pompous gods who preside
over the island make a bet over which is stronger, love or death,
with the stakes being Ti Moune's life. When she pursues Daniel, who
has returned to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly
status. Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not
enough to win Daniel's heart. Ti Moune pays the ultimate price, but
the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall,
it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately
