Jamaica Avenue

Jamaica Avenue combines harsh reality with magic. It is about three intertwining and transforming lives: a man, a spirit who comes back as a woman, and a woman who becomes a ghost. Their stories about drug addiction, stealing, hurting, longing, finding, and surviving span fourteen years of love, disappointment, and hope.
