The Canasta Table is a stirring story which revolves around three couples living on a beautiful Caribbean Island, whose lives become entangled with greed, corruption and ultimately murder. A group of women get together weekly to enjoy the card game 'Canasta'. The conversation is usually centred around innocent local gossip, social events and obtaining amenities on the small island on which they all live.

As Expats, they rely on their close friends and tight bonds with each other to survive Island life, but when the bonds become too close and scandal and corruption raise their ugly heads, the conversation and atmosphere around 'The Canasta Table' quickly changes.

The story is centred around three of the women and their spouses who belonged to this circle of friends and how one of the couples intense need for money and power dramatically affected all of their lives.

THE CANASTA TABLE Not just where cards were played, but also a vocal platform which allowed the Tom Tom drums to beat, quickly spreading news and gossip around the Island. What story would your drum beat?
