Haiti Bride

Haiti Bride

Haiti Bride centres around Marie-Thérèse, who leaves Haiti for New York with her family when Jean-Bertrand Aristide is thrown out of power. Years later Marie-Thérèse meets and falls in love with Paul, a fellow Haitian. They go back to Haiti to get married, but unfortunately the date and time of the wedding coincide with the 2011 earthquake. The lovers are separated, and fear that the other is dead. A year later, however, they meet again.
