In 2002, Queen Elizabeth II visited Jamaica for her Golden Julibee Celebrations. While there she was petitioned by a group of Rastafari for slavery reparations. For Rastafari, reparations are linked to a desire to return to Africa, the homeland of their African ancestors, brought to Jamaica as slaves. The film traces this petition, as well as a reparations lawsuit filed against the Queen. It explores the stories of earlier Rastas who pursued reparations in the 1960s, and who undertook a historic mission to Africa. Filmed over a decade, it explores the impact of slavery and the movement for reparations led by Jamaica’s Rastafari.
