In 1902, a multigenerational family in the Gullah community on the Sea Islands off of South Carolina, USA – former West African slaves who carried on many of their ancestors’ Yoruba traditions – struggle to maintain their cultural heritage and folklore while contemplating a migration to the mainland, even further from their roots. Awash in gorgeously poetic, sun-dappled images at once dreamlike and precise, the film forges a new visual language rooted in black femininity and the rituals of Gullah culture.
