Back to Freeport

Jamal Edwards, 30, lives a less than ideal life in the busy city of Port of Spain. He is forced to go back to his dilapidated childhood home in Freeport, where his younger brother Joseph still lives. Jamal reluctantly begins renovating the old house, only to be plagued by the memories of his abusive childhood and the broken relationship he has with his brother.
