April Yvette Thompson knows Miami's Liberty City. It's where urban and island cultures rub up against each other, and it's where she grew up with her Bahamian/Cuban father and African-American mother. Now she brings to life that neighborhood as it was during her childhood - the turbulent 1970s and '80s, a time when hope and the possibility of change gave way to disillusionment and disintegration, and families struggled to stay together as their worlds were coming apart.

April tells us her life story with "scorching insight on how history both frees and chains us at the same time." - Variety.
