Joyous and vibrant, set against the lush green mountains of Jamaica, Inna de Yard sees a superstar group of reggae legends gather to record a new album of infectious hits in an unplugged style that harks back to their roots.

Directed by Peter Webber (Girl With a Pearl Earring), the film is studded with intimate acoustic versions of classic tracks (such as Ken Boothe’s Everything I Own) and dazzling live performances from their unforgettable all-star concert in Paris.
This landmark film recounts the history and continuing cultural importance of reggae music and paints an unforgettable portrait of these pioneering artists and the successes, triumphs and heartaches afforded by a lifetime immersed in this colossally influential music scene.
