  • When a Haitian immigrant is incarcerated for a rape he steadfastly denies he committed, a disillusioned corrections officer believes his story and helps him post bail, even opening his house to the stranger. Ultimately, however, he and his wife discover that no good deed goes unpunished. First-time writer-director Joe Brewster's unflinching look at urban black life won the Best Film award at the Newark (NJ) Black Film Festival.
