Chase Dellal was just a little girl when she left Haiti. Her past remains for her an unexplained child's nightmare. A coroner in New York City, she spends her time every day next to vic tims of a violence that strikes the weakest, and defends her integrity in a world rotting with an inexorable corruption. She's bored with her comfortable but aimless relationship with Ralph, a married man, judge in the
state court and ambitious politician. Everything turns upside down with Dimitri appears, after a ten-year absence. A Haitian diplomat in exile, he submits to the humiliations reserved for blacks, and the disdain of American officials. Chase and he rediscover the love that bound them together in their youth. Perhaps it's this love that will allow the two of them to start their lives again.
