Three Kids

Three Kids

A steadfast friendship binds Mickenson, Pierre and Vitaleme, three 12-year-old boys living in a children’s home in Port-au-Prince. When an earthquake devastates the city, the lads escape to seek their fortune on the streets. Mickenson and Pierre then have an accident, and are placed in care. This separates them from Vitaleme, who refuses to accept the new situation. Three KidsTwa timoun in Haitian Creole—is a moving portrait of three boys’ attempt at survival; it also shows their exuberance in the midst of a devastated city where life must go on.
