“I’m black, born Haitian, French and Jewish by adoption. I feel all those things, but people only see me as a black person, so it's hard for me to find my place.”

At 34, David has reached the pinnacle of academic achievement. He has passed his doctoral examination and is about to become a Doctor of Law. However, David still had a calling. He has yet to find his place in the world. David was born Haitian and then adopted by a French Jewish family. We follow his dreams and fears, as he searches for an uncertain answer in a world that marginalizes differences. David is an alien in his own homeland. A stranger among his fellow Haitians; David is on a quest to find his identity.
