Caribbean American Heritage Month: DC Caribbean Film Fest

VIGILANTE: THE CROSSING – Friday, June 10, 2016 at 9:30 pm

Deported from the U.S. to Barbados, ex-con Dexter discovers his homeland engulfed in crime. Armed with the guilt of his past crimes and a genuine passion to see his birthplace thrive, he takes on the role of a vigilante. Employing Robin Hood-style tactics to eradicate his village of criminals, he soon collides with Amy, a white Barbadian woman who deploys a polar opposite, Martin Luther King-like approach to helping the same community. As the boiling pot of racial prejudice, passion, love and hate erupts, their lives and shared mission reach a crucial crossroads.
