When Susan, a film producer from NYC, goes to Jamaica to shoot a shampoo commercial, she finds herself, through a series of unforeseen circumstances, drifting further and further away from the world she knows and into the life of the island, a strange alternative reality that turns many of her previously held assumptions upside down.

'The picture abounds with amazing landscapes and trenchant but quietly articulated commentaries on tourism and Jamaica's other economies, or lack thereof, in this era' - Glenn Kenny, New York Times
