Agwe

17m Fiction 2021

Francois leaves Haiti by sailboat to the USA, leaving behind his wife, Mirlande, who is six months pregnant. She has to wait ten days to hear from her husband. And now ten years later, without any news, the woman who still hopes and waits offers a sacrifice to Agwe, the divinity of the oceans.

François salpa da Haiti in barca a vela alla volta degli USA lasciando dietro di sé la moglie incinta di sei mesi. Mirlande dovrà aspettare dieci giorni per avere notizie del marito. Ed ecco che, dieci anni più tardi, la donna – che senza notizie aspetta e spera ancora – offre un sacrificio a Agwe, la divinità degli oceani.
