Once on This Island is set on a Caribbean island and tells the story of a young girl named Ti Moune. Set against the backdrop of social divisions, the story unfolds as Ti Moune falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island. Guided by the powerful island gods, Ti Moune’s determination and courage are put to the test as she defies tradition and strives to prove that love can conquer all boundaries. Once on This Island is a tale of resilience, sacrifice, and the magic of the human heart.
