Rate this:
When Amelia Varnes leaves New York to return to her mother's home and trace her family's history, she enters the lives of the Peazants. As she listens to the colourful "lies" they tell, their history comes alive in the poetry of their language and the music of their voices. Past and present intertwine in their stories of Africa, of slavery and emancipation, of the passions and joys of family life, and of a people who shaped their destiny with their own strong hands.
