Filmed at a center for street children in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, founded by President Aristide in 1986. Interviews with five children recounting stories of how they were orphaned or abandoned by their parents, their struggle to live on the streets, and how they came to the center, whose Creole name means "Family is Life."

Note:These interviews with commentary from the center's teachers and Aristide himself reveal difficulties of life in a small country affected by colonization, grinding poverty, military rule, and a global economy.
