A young dub poet is swept up in the violence of the 1980 national election in Jamaica. Arrested and interrogated, she finds the strength in her maternal ancestors to stand up for her country’s future. Featuring the plays blood.claat, benu, and word! sound! powah!, these extraordinary stories of three generations of strong women and their resolute belief in blood and truth form a lyrical trilogy that resonates with power.
