Whether it’s on the soccer field or in a back alley in modern-day Haiti, the strong survive, but the smart thrive. Belensky Petion is a young man who happens to be a heavy gambler, an upcoming soccer star and womanizer. He is also heavily in debt to local loan shark Louidor. The potential soccer star and his American cousin are kidnapped and held for ransom. When their relatives are slow to pay, they have to use their wits and courage to stay alive. As his plight grows worse by the day, Belensky is about to learn how small Haiti can really be for him in his situation.
