God Loves The Fighter
The gritty urban drama follows homeless street poet, King Curtis, a prophetic, omniscient narrator as he tells the raw, tragic story of Charlie, a young man growing up in Laventille. He wants an honest job, but circumstances nevertheless drive him toward a life of crime. When prostitute Dinah crosses his path and desperately needs help, Charlie reaches a crossroads in his life. Set in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, the murder capital of the Caribbean, GOD LOVES THE FIGHTER realistically portrays what it is like to live in Laventille, one of the most dangerous slums in the world.
"The young men are still good at their core! Maybe more of us could stop pointing at a man when he's down and offer him a hand to help him back up."
