    SYNOPSIS:

    This documentary records with intelligence and insight the influence of French culture on the life and history of Trinidad. The role of the Catholic Church, of the French and Patois (Creole) languages, of educational institutions, of family values and the impact of racism, prejudice and cultural stereotypes are discussed frankly and fairly. This is essential viewing for anyone wishing to gain deeper understanding of the social and cultural fabric of Trinidad & Tobago.
