Better Mus' Come

Sheldon Shepherd and Nicole Sky Grey, the male and female leads in Storm Saulter's debut feature film "Better Mus' Come", which hits US cinemas on March 15, 2013.

Written and directed by Storm Saulter, “Better Mus’ Come” is inspired by the infamous Green Bay Massacre, which took place during a very volatile period in Jamaica’s history.  A stunning love story unfolds at a time when rival Jamaican gangs carry out the bidding of political benefactors in a struggle for power that unleashes bloodshed on the streets. The film is the winner of Best Feature Awards at the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival and Bahamas International Film Festival, Best Director Award at Pan-African Film Festival and Best Actor Award at the American Black Film Festival.
