A Winter Tale (1981)
A community torn asunder by the death of a young child must fight to regain the sense of solidarity they had before this sudden tragedy in director Frances-Ann Solomon's elegiac urban drama. It was a typical night in the downtown Toronto community of Parkdale when the sound of gunshots shattered the still winter silence. By the time the silence in the neighborhood was restored, a ten year-old boy lay dead in the streets - the unfortunate recipient of a bullet intended for a local drug dealer. While the regular diners at Miss G's Caribbean Take-Away do their best to settle back into their regular routine, the crushing weight of suspicion and the foul stench of grief linger much too strong for devastated local Gene Wright. Gene knows that the only way for his neighborhood to prevent any more children from dying is to pull together, and upon approaching his friends for help he is grateful to find that he's not the only one feeling this way. Before long, six like-minded black men who share Gene's passion for life vow to form a community support group designed to ensure that the children in their neighborhood can look forward to a bright and positive future. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi … More
