BOB MARLEY’S popularity is greater than ever, with his songs beloved the world over and his message of love, unity and justice an inspiration to millions of people.

Beginning with his early days growing up in poverty in Jamaica and tracing his rise to international superstardom, the movie comprises rare archival footage, incredible live performances and revelatory interviews with members of his family and some of his closest friends.
