Each year, millions of tourists flock to the Dominican Republic for a taste of tropical paradise and for one of the island’s main attractions: sex. MASSACRE RIVER tells the story of two women, a Haitian sex worker and a Dominican prostitute-turned-activist, as they strive to build better lives for their families. Through their stories, we discover the racial tension and violent demonstrations that have erupted recently as two nations, the Dominican Republic and Haiti, attempt to share the island of Hispaniola.
