Synopsis Two hours away from Miami beach, there is one of the most endemically poor countries in the world. Haiti, the infraworld, and in its capital, Puerto Príncipe, the Cité Soleil quarter is the hell where live to be fifty. Wilson "2pac" Jean (as a homage to Tupac Sakur) and his brother Wyclef, are the lords and owners of the quarter, constantly fighting the rival bands. But one day, the two brothers become bitter enemies. One of them military supports Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the president of the country, whereas the other one lends his arms to the opposition trying to overthrow him.
