In the documentary, award-winning author Candice Brathwaite explores Barbados’ transition to a republic and interviews poet laureate Esther Phillips, historian Dr Pedro Welch, artist Oneka Small, journalist Krystal-Penny Bowen and socio-economics expert Professor Don Marshall. What emerges is a sense of the nation's changing identity.
