The Harder They Come director Perry Henzel returns to the Caribbean paradise which inspired that reggae-infused classic to tell this breezy tale of a worldly, New York producer who travels to Jamaica to lens a commercial, only to find her latest production thrown into question when her star player storms off of the set. Susan (Susan O'Meara)'s latest project is a shampoo commercial that she envisions shooting against the backdrop of Jamaica's breathtaking beaches and waterfalls. When the shoot doesn't go as planned and Susan's fair-haired lead (P.J. Soles) abandons the production, the producer and a local crewman (Carl Bradshaw) voyage deep into rural Jamaica in search of the vanished actress. Shot in the 1970s and subsequently stalled when the negative went missing, Henzel's follow-up to the 1972 Jimmy Cliff classic was eventually completed in the early years of the new millennium when the director surprisingly stumbled across the long-lost footage in a New York film lab.
