In Haiti, la borlette is the local lottery. Because of poverty and unemployment, people often have no other choice but to play, chasing the dream of winning. Superstition, dreams and premonitions, as well as the reality of this lucrative business all make up a portrait of Haitian society - grinding poverty, beliefs and survival through resourcefulness.
