Film by Zack Baddorf



    Ben seems to have a perfect life in his new life in Haiti. Raised in suburban Wisconsin, Ben now lives in a beautiful home overlooking the Caribbean and trains Haitian teachers in Creole at a school just a quick walk away. He loves the solitude and peace that he finds in this remote rural village. Yet, when Ben returns home to the United States to visit his family, he struggles to figure out what to do with his life.
