Jerry Maka West is a Rastafarian who lives a simple life in Dominica’s forested interior, his Zion. Here he grows and prepares his food just as his grandparents taught him. Jerry skips in and out of the modern world, never really being drawn into it. Instead, he prefers to remain close to nature, working hard to put in as much as he takes out, in harmony with a living earth.

Trinidad & Tobago premiere.
