One stormy night in the Antilles, thunder booms and lightning crashes making a small girl cry in fear. To comfort her, the village storytellers tell her the musical tale of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who falls in love with the son of wealthy planters. Filled with glorious and heartbreaking music, "Once On This Island" is an unforgettable story of life, pain, love, grief, faith, and hope.
