Wayne Tippetts

Synopsis

Loosely based around Romeo and Juliet, and the lyrics of the inimitable Bob Marley's famous song, this engaging film (that stars Marley’s son) takes full advantage of Jamaica's rich musical and religious diversity to produce a delicious inspiring love story. Entering a local music competition, Kassa (Ky-mani Marley), a young Rasta reggae musician is transfixed by the angelic voice and looks of Serena (Cherine Anderson) a devout gospel-singing daughter of a Pentecostal pastor (Winston Stona). Set in steamy Jamaican locations and throbbing with an incredible soundtrack, religious and cultural prejudices, a jealous fiancé (Idris Elba), insecure band members and the nefarious dealings of the competition’s promoter (Winston Bello), all conspire to keep Kassa and Serena from their musical and romantic destiny.
