This is the gritty, groundbreaking and truly legendary film that tells the story of Ivan Martin, an aspiring young singer-turned-outlaw, at war with Jamaica’s music industry, police, and his rivals in the ganja trade. His dreams of stardom become reality as he rises to the top of the pop charts… and the most wanted list.

UK PREMIERE When Susan (Susan O’Meara), a film producer from NYC, goes to Jamaica to shoot a shampoo commercial, she finds herself drifting further and further away from the world she knows and into the life of the island, a strange alternative reality that turns many of her previously held assumptions upside down.
