Summary Cassandra Jones, a young black woman, feels trapped. Unable to relate to her brother Patrick or her overly pious mother, she decides to leave town. Through a foreign exchange program, she finds her way to a Canadian pig farm where she encounters Sylvie, a woman in need of change, and her husband Kenny who's afraid of change. She also meets the homesick Abdoulaye Diallo, her African exchange counterpart. When none of her expectations are met, Cassandra quickly becomes unhappy on the farm. Her presence creates plenty of tension, much of it humorous. A surprising conclusion comes about after a roller coaster series of events.
