To reveal the culture, history, strength and resiliency of the Haitian People as seen through the optic of the January 12, 2010 earthquake. Ms. Oriol believes it is important to relate the experiences of the earthquake from a Haitian perspective. The urge to share their stories moved her to actualize a documentary exposing their life changing experiences and inform the international community about the earthquake's effects at an individual level. Consequently the documentary provides a platform to give a voice to the voiceless, reveals cultural character traits and exposes the Haitian Spirit. Filmed entirely in Haitian Creole, this project is a gift to her fellow Haitians so that a better understanding of who they are are comes from their own words.
