This musical crime story stars reggae musician Jimmy Cliff as Ivanhoe Martin, a singer who travels from the United States to Jamaica to pursue his musical career. Once in Kingston, Martin resorts to crimes, some petty and some not so petty, to makes ends meet as he struggles to get his musical career off the ground. The film is notable not so much for its plot or performances, which the consensus holds to acceptable at best, but for its soundtrack, which is often credited with bringing reggae to a broader North American audience in the early 1970s. The film was directed by Perry Henzell.
