The Sweetest Mango was the first feature-length film to come out of the Eastern Caribbean, and it sold out the box office in Antigua for weeks after its release. The film is essentially the story of the two filmmakers โ€“ how they met and fell in love โ€“ and that first gift from him to her, a mango. Showcasing the beauty of Antigua โ€” its music, food, and beautiful shoreline โ€” it is an endearing and heartwarming tale of island love.
