How to re-imagine a tragedy from the first decade of the 2000s? That’s the spark that illuminates this film. Ten years after the apparent suicide of a teenager, the history of this loss is rethought, still affecting the present, with the promise of what this girl’s future could have been. In a story that triangulates Haiti, Canada and the United States, Tessa returns to the world through the power of cinema.
