The Fight for Belle Vue

Brothers Tonne and Kosh, are battling over their family estate at Belle Vue. Kosh wants to sell to Henri Laroche, an
American investor, but Tonne insists that their ancestral land should be handed down to succeeding generations and refuses to succumb to pressure from Kosh and his family. When he turns to the Kèlè traditions of his ancestors and his daughter, Sandra, for help, the fight for Belle Vue evolves from a struggle for land into a battle of art, love, religion, politics, and power.

The Field of Power

Captivated by the lure of modern society,
Eva strikes out from her poverty-stricken village of Derrière Morne in search of her fortune, leaving her boyfriend, Mawon, behind. To escape, Eva must face the Ladjablès, who holds the key to the Secret Gate. While Eva tries to resist the Ladjablès, the Soucouyant, partner of Ladjablès, works to mesmerize Mawon. Thus Eva and Mawon become drawn into a fierce battle for their bodies and souls in which they must access the field of power.
