Storyline
On the small caribbean island of Jamaica a music was born that conquered the world. Coming out of the ghetto, it has inspired generations to believe in and to fight for a better world. Today, everybody knows Reggae and its superstar Bob Marley. But the story of the founders of Reggae has never been told. Forty years later they are reuniting for the first time to record their old hits on an album and to tell their story.
