In 1979, the Grenadian people carried out the first successful revolution in the English speaking Caribbean. The Revolution attracted workers from around the world, including director Damani Baker’s mother, who, in 1983, moved to the island with her young children from Oakland, California, to participate in the Revolution. Shortly after, the United States led a military invasion following the assassination of the popular young Grenadian Prime Minister, Maurice Bishop. Baker and his family hid under the bed for three days as bombs shook their new home, shattering the paradise they had discovered. Sixteen years later, in 1999, Baker returns to Grenada with his mother to begin work on a documentary film, searching for her story, one that felt not just untold, but unfinished. Using footage he shot, as well as a box of super 8 family footage uncovered in rural Louisiana in 2014, Baker unravels his mother’s path to activism.
