Synopsis (Courtesy of Euzhanpalcy.net)

1930, on a sugar cane plantation in Martinique lives José, a bright mischievous 11-year-old and his grandmother, a tough, wise woman determined to save him from the hard life she has known. When Jose wins a scholarship, she is ready to sacrifice everything for his chance at an education and an escape from the fields. Sugar Cane Alley, Palcy’s first feature film, is based on the semi-autobiographical novel by famed novelist Joseph Zoebel entitled Black Shack Alley.
