The love story between the Jamaican and British cultures culminates in the impact that Reggae, Ska and Rocksteady had in the UK through the years 1960/70. It all started with music producer Duke Reid. In 1968, he founded the record label Trojan Records. The name based on the truck brand that carried the Reid sound system, which carried music to every corner of Jamaica in the 1950s. Names like Jimmy Cliff or The Maytals would be unknown if it were not for Trojan Records. Director Nicolas Jack Davies tells this story with the help of archive footage, but also with interviews with names like Don Letts or Lee "Scratch" Perry. (César Nóbrega)
