Summary:

In a masterful blend of historical footage, interviews and artwork, this film presents the history of the Haitian peoples struggle for their rights. After suffering under tyrants for decades, the Haitians finally elected Jean Bertrand Aristide who was overthrown by the military, but later returned. This film focuses on some of the victims of human rights violations and on the work of United Nations human rights observers who have been dispatched to Haiti to help establish a working democracy. They are instituting new methods such as town meetings, mediation training, and community policemen as they work to help the Haitians learn to protect and promote human rights.
