She Paradise

She Paradise

Sparkle is a teenager on the brink of adulthood with few prospects, friends or motivation after graduating from high school. She faces pressure to provide for herself and her household as her Papa’s jewelry business dwindles. In the bustling Port-of-Spain market one afternoon, she finds a collective of talented Soca back-up dancers recruiting for the next season. Seeing an opportunity for an escape, Sparkle goes against her Papa’s wishes and joins the dancers, who in turn give her a dizzying glimpse of wealth, glamour and nightlife in Trinidad.
