An intoxicating cocktail of love, duty, death and dominoes.   Based on the true events in the lives of Jamaicans who fought in World War One and set amid the banter in Medora’s rum bar near Kingston Harbour, four young men tell their stories of death and glory as the end of the British Empire looms.
