    • Synopsis
    • Vincia, Mirlande, Lucie, Yvette and Samanta live in Port-au-Prince. After the earthquake, they gathered on a piece of land supposed to be a refugee camp. There, on this desolate land, they had to wait for three long years before being finally taken care of and rehoused in their place of origin.

      Elsa Dafour began shooting in 2012, and her film has been following for three years the trajectory of those women, victims and friends. They tell us how vulnerable they were in the camp, how long they had to wait to be rehoused, enduring international silence, and finally how they came back to their home, willing to rebuild their lives. Besides, reconstruction players, members of the government and human rights observers, give us some insights into the situation in post-earthquake Haiti.

      Five years after a major humanitarian tragedy, “Tomorrow God willing” sheds a new light on the attempted reconstruction of a country and its people.
