Film Description:
"Set in an imaginary nameless space that closely resembles the Caribbean, Child-Play is an allegorical Dream Tale paralleling the 'innocence' of childhood and the elder phases of existence. Ateesha Mansara, a woman in her late sixties, has lived a life colonized by her own fears about the threat of usurpation of her identity by the Dutchman Spirit of a child molester, whom she had previously met when she was a girl of ten. The spirit of Georgie De Root revisits Ateesha fifty years later in a final attempt to lay 'claim' to her soul. Or does he?"
