Synopsis

According to Haitian poet, art critic and actor, Dominique Batraville, it’s a matchbox, but it contains entire worlds. There are the collected works of Magloire-Saint-Aude and Jacques Stephen Alexis. All of Carl Brouard’s poetry is here, raw material for an anthology of the tireless hiker. In his bedroom-office-library, a melancholy Batraville sings, recites poems and alludes to the struggles and triumphs of his life as a writer and actor. As he rummages through his endless labyrinth of books and manuscripts, another dimension opens up.
