Countryman is no ordinary man. He is a man of the sea, a man of knowledge, in effortless harmony with everything that lives and breathes.
A fisherman's solitary existence is shattered when an airplane crashes into a nearby swamp. By rescuing two young Americans from wreckage, the fisherman, Countryman, becomes an unwitting player in a political plot devised by power-hungry Colonel Sinclair. The couple and Countryman, branded by Sinclair as enemy agent, are forced to flee into the Jamaican wilderness to elude capture. The peaceful Rastafarian hero shows the Americans his knowledge of land and sea, but when violence peaks, he shows that he is capable of unleashing an awesome, almost magical display of acrobatic hand-to-hand combat.
Highlighting this modern high-adventure story are performance by some of the Caribbean's finest Reggae singers and musicians. Compiled by Island Records, the soundtrack includes "Pass It On", "Jah Live", and "Rat Race" by the immortal Bob Marley and The Wailers; "Sound System" by Steel Pulse; "Bam Bam" by Toots and The Maytals; and 'Wisdom" by Jah Lion.
The Palm Channel will present some of the highlights from our catalogue, an eclectic mix of original short films, interviews from our archives exploring the roots and branches of Jamaican music, and much more.
