"Bad Friday" focuses on a community of Rastafarians in the Montego Bay area of Jamaica who annually commemorate the 1963 Coral Gardens “incident”, when the Jamaican government rounded up, jailed and tortured hundreds of Rastafarians. Using the testimony of survivors, the film chronicles the history of violence in Jamaica through the eyes of its most iconic community, and shows how people use their recollections of past traumas to imagine new possibilities for the future.
