Summary
In Haiti during the dictatorial 1960s, the man known as the "dew breaker" was a torturer. Now an American and a fixture in his Brooklyn neighborhood, he maintains a quiet life as a husband and father. His terrible deeds lie buried. As we meet his family, neighbors, and even his past victims, his story becomes one of reconciliation and rebellion. And as we return one final time to his turbulent past, we witness his last violent act, and his first encounter with the woman who offers him a chance for salvation
