Delicious complaining and natter.
* BrokenAesop: The storytellers tell you that the story is about how love can conquer death...when the real message is "Go after a boy who doesn't really care about you - [[spoiler: you'll die]], but it's still the power of love!" ** [[CompletelyMissingThePoint Yeah...]] Either that or, "Even if you are betrayed in the most horrible way possible, you should still continue to be a good person." ---> "So I hope that you will tell this tale tomorrow. It will help your heart remember and relive. It will help you feel the anger and the sorrow... ''[[TearJerker and forgive.]]''

The story is a loose Caribbean retelling of "Literature/TheLittleMermaid" tale. On an island in the French Antilles, there is a strong gap between the rich and poor. The peasants, alienated because of their darker skin, labor and pray to the Gods every day, while the Grand Hommes ([[BilingualBonus great men]]) live a carefree life. The four gods (Asaka, mother of the Earth, Agwe, God of water, Erzulie, [[LoveGoddess Goddess of love]], and Papa Ge, [[TheGrimReaper demon of death]]) are temperamental and constantly cruel. However, during one of Agwe's greatest floods, he decides to spare a young orphan girl. She is found and taken in by two peasants - Mama Euralie and Tonton Julian.
