𝗢𝘂𝘁𝗱𝗲𝗵 is a documentary about the youth in Jamaica: a new generation determined to break the old structures in society and culture. With a fresh perspective, they want to contribute to a new direction for the Caribbean island. The first film by the young director Louis Josek with producer Andreas Jaritz (The Old, the Young and the Sea) follows three young people in their quest: surfer Shama, rapper Bakersteez and Romar from Downtown Kingston.
