A mixed-race teetotaler in Prohibition-era Appalachia becomes a bootlegger when her Ne'er-do-well husband gambles away the land they've held for generations.
In Haiti, 1971, at the start of "Baby Doc" Duvalier's Presidency, a little girl named Family dreams of becoming a famous singer. Sent to live as an unpaid servant for an abusive family when her mother suddenly disappears, Family is now known as a Restavek. With the help of a politically-driven teacher and a naïve journalist, Family's dream (and survival) hinges on a once-in-a-lifetime chance to sing for the new President.
