The Public Library ABQ-Bernco and Friends of the Public Library present our annual book to film adaptation event, Books to the Big Screen!
The story concerns the residents of a once-posh hotel in Haiti and the fate of the country's people under the despotic dictator Papa Doc Duvalier. Martha is the philandering wife of a South American. She seeks solace in the arms of hotel-owner Brown, whose main focus is to keep making improvements on his crumbling building. Brown later gets a sudden twinge of morality and decides to go off to the mountains to help the rebels in their heroic cause.
