Black Marina, set on an 'island paradise' within the Caribbean, tells a narrative of significant strength and poignancy partially encouraged through the occasions surrounding the invasion of Grenada in 1983.

Holly Baker, an English lady, got here to St James in the course of her carefree days of bar-hopping within the Nineteen Sixties. by some means she by no means controlled to break out. Now, her loyalties fluctuating, she is stuck up within the complex levels of a drama either own and political - and which embodies the conflicts inherent during this small, dangerously put society. because the island and its viewers organize for Christmas, occasions that have been seeded on the time of Holly's arrival on St James eventually blow up right into a violent and chilling debacle.
