When 13 year old Horace's favourite aunt, Roomeen, arrives from her long sojourn in Panama, everyone is excited to see her; but everyone is even more interested in what is in her trunk. In the days following Auntie Roomeen's arrival, her gold chain goes missing, and the theft ignites the long-standing rift between Auntie Roomeen and her siblings. Amidst the arguing, Horace must question the intentions and actions of the people he loves most while the hunt for the gold chain sets in motion a series of events, including an unexpected wedding, a surprising love triangle, and an explosive confrontation that will have Horace believing that all that glitters, truly isn't gold. Set in 1950's Trinidad in a small fishing village, All That Glitters is a witty and heart-warming story about deceptive appearances and redemption, and how big things can stir up the quaint existence on a small island.
