In the midst of Haiti's lush mountains and historical relics is an epidemic of over 500,000 orphan children who wander the streets day and night. Known as the 'soulless' and forgotten by their own people, they do what they must to survive each day. Strange Things follows three teenage boys - Denick, a prolific and charming 14 year old; Nickenson, a tough but sensitive 16 year old; and Antoine, an energetic paint-thinner abuser - who reflect on their country and their lives, while sharing a common dream of education, government assistance, and social acceptance. Shot in the northern city of Cap-Haïtien over a period of two years, Strange Things is a cinematic feature-length documentary that captures the spirit of human survival and transports you to Haiti's strange contrasts, breathtaking landscapes and rich history, through the eyes of some of Haiti's most unforgettable characters.
