A gothic punk Caribbean love story arises in the ruins of a coconut plantation in rural Trinidad. Asha is drawn to Roger, the boy across the road. Their taboo attraction grows despite family disapproval, political turmoil, a clash between cultures, and mysterious hauntings by unnaturally tall ancestral spirits. If you follow your heart in the Land of Sugar, you might find MOKO JUMBIE.
