    Will We Make It - Episode 3: Homecoming, but coming home looks different in a pandemic.

    Will We Make It - Episode 3: Homecoming, but coming home looks different in a pandemic.

    The lockdown. After returning to Queens from London, Katrina finds herself in a precarious position as her return has prompted a different emotion from what both she and her parents expected. To cope, Katrina is doing what she feels is best for her: therapy. For old-fashioned Jamaican father Toney, therapy isn’t his first option for his daughter. As Meryl tries to keep the peace, a lot is exposed when an argument erupts between father and daughter. Will the family make it through quarantine closer or will they be ripped apart?

Caribbean in Queens...in Covid-19...

This is a great podcast to listen to as we hit the one year mark of living in a pandemic. It moves fast and the storylines and characters really hold your attention. The theme song is so catchy.
