Kingston Paradise

Kingston Paradise

LIFE ON THE streets of Kingston is about frantic survival for Rocksy, a taxi driver and pimp, and Rosie, his roommate and a prostitute. Rocksy eyes a fancy sports car belonging to a businessman, Faris, and devises a plot to steal and sell it for parts. Rosie, though dead set against the plan, 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.
