Swaying through the crowds in the ghettos, striding over the hillsides of his childhood home, meditating in the church of his village, Jimmy Cliff tells the story of a country boy who took off in search of the limelight. the documentary also sheds light on the birth of Rasta, ska and reggea music, Cliff"s friendship with Bob Marley and the hardships and extraordinary creativity of the Jamaican people, which lends the film its most genuine moments. Jimmy Cliff has his own special place in the history of reggea. Profoundly Jamaican, his freethinking nature led him on the uncanny road from Christianity to Rasta and finally to Islam, from soul and rock to reggea and ska. This path has been a great inspiration to Cliff"s work, some of the world"s best-selling music.
