Part film, part baptism of the soul, Khalik Allah’s film takes us on a spiritual journey through Jamaica.
Allah introduces us to a succession of candid testimonies from people who call this island home, creating a polyphonic symphony of richly diverse voices. The film channels rebellion and reverence into a deeply personal ode, informed by Jamaica’s turbulent history yet existing in the urgent present. Allah’s own voice remains strong without, but never dominates this exploration of a land rich in culture, nature and humanity.
