Countryman is no ordinary man. He is a man of the sea, a man of knowledge, in effortless harmony with everything that lives and breathes. A fisherman's solitary existence is shattered when an airplane crashes into a nearby swamp. By rescuing two young Americans from the wreckage, the fisherman, Countryman, becomes an unwitting player in a political plot devised by the power-hungry Colonel Sinclair. The couple and Countryman, branded by Sinclair as enemy agents, are forced to flee into the Jamaican wilderness to elude capture. The peaceful Rastafarian hero shows the Americans his knowledge of land and sea, but when violence peaks, he shows that he is capable of unleashing an awesome, almost magical display of acrobatic hand-to-hand combat. Highlighting this modern high-adventure story are performances by some of the Caribbean's finest reggae singers and musicians. The soundtrack includes Pass It On by Bunny Wailer, Jah Live and Rat Race by Bob Marley & The Wailers, Sound System by Steel Pulse, Bam Bam by Toots & The Maytals and Wisdom by Jah Lion.
