Kingston Paradise

Finding himself stuck in the violent ghettos of Kingston, Jamaica, a self-absorbed street hustler, Rocksy, devises a daring but not-so-clever plan to steal a fancy sports car from right under the owner’s nose. Rosie, his roommate and a prostitute, is dead set against the plan, but is drawn in anyway. When things fall apart, Rocksy becomes desperate and does the unthinkable. In the resulting chaos something changes within him, in a world where real change is hardly ever found. Directed by award-winning filmmaker, Mary Wells, ‘Kingston Paradise’ is her first feature film and stars popular Jamaican entertainer Christopher ‘Johnny’ Daley.
