3 Jamaican Film Classics.
Third World Cop. Set in the edgy streets of Kingston where Capone, a star crime fighter, is transferred back to his hometown. He is reunited with his friend, Ratty, the right hand of the notorious local Don. Torn between their obligations and personal histories, each man offers the other a chance to change ultimately, leading to an explosive and violent finale.
Dancehall Queen. In the gritty world of the Kingston ghetto there are few ways out. Fortunately, Marcia, a humble street vendor struggling to survive as a single mother, discovers the world of the dancehall. Through it she finds more than great music and hot relationships, she finds a way to a better life.
Countryman. By rescuing two Americans from a plane crash, Countryman, a lonely fisherman, becomes involved in a political plot devised by a power-hungry colonel. Marked as enemy agents, Countryman and the Americans flee into the wilderness, but when the violence peaks, the peaceful Rastafarian shows he is capable of unleasing an awesome, almost magical display of acrobatic hand to hand combat.
