A personal essay film which uses actual sugar production as a point of departure to explore a variety of relational moments that involve soft power, gratitude, and love. The film evolved from the filmmaker’s hand-production of about 1,000 sugar packets, the majority of which she gave as gifts to workers at the Domino Sugar Refinery during their twenty-month strike in the early 2000’s.
