Summary
This bittersweet love story of Pat and Fabian, two Black teenagers with roots in the Caribbean, is set in the urban environment of Montreal. Sharing an apartment with two single mothers and trying to finish high school, Pat discovers she is pregnant. Fabian, the baby's father, is expelled from school and attempts to find employment. Alternately amusing and touching, the film charts the couple's attempts to set up and maintain a household. Their short-lived domestic life is punctuated by the reggae music of Jimmy Cliff.
