TRINIDAD – King Curtis, a vagrant on the streets of Port of Spain, is constantly ignored by passersby. He speaks and if he has to – sometimes shouts the truth about the stories behind the newspaper headlines. As the conductor of our story, King Curtis introduces us to a young man named Charlie…
Charlie, a resident east of the lighthouse, is trying his best to stay on the right path. However, with no job in sight, he is finding it hard to say no to other “opportunities”. A chance of redemption presents itself when Dinah, a professional streetwalker, crosses his path in need of help.
As the story unfolds, King Curtis reveals the ripple effect created by a person’s decision making; leading to moments of triumph and moments of tragedy.
So if you like Films like “City of God”, “Amores Perros”, “Dancehall Queen” or “Shottas” you will love the Fighter. This is really a cool film. Its poetic, its real, it shows the badness of ghettoliving, but it also spread love. I really loved the concept with the storyteller and the music is great. Also it comes with the o-tone in the underlines. Trinispeech is such a great accent.
