“Joseph is a film about a Jamaican doctor, who comes from a family of wealthy doctors, but he is in turmoil over his African ancestry. This quest was inspired by stories of Africa from his grandfather and a fellow Ghanaian doctor who studied in Jamaica. The star is in anguish, with thoughts and desires to find out more about his roots, but meets stiff opposition and ridicule from his family who thinks he is being ridiculous and backward thinking. It is a battle to be overcome; or he could be crushed by it. The film was shot on location in Ghana, Jamaica and Barbados. Step By Step Productions is a film company operating out of Barbados in the Caribbean.”
