Here's the first trailer for Sudz Sutherland's drama Home Again, which stars Tatyana AliLyriq BentStephan JamesRichard ChevolleauC.C.H. Pounder, and Fefe Dobson.

The film's world premiere happened at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.

The synopsis:

Home Again tells the story of three young people deported home to Jamaica after being raised abroad since infancy. Once landed in Kingston and without a compass of any kind, each of the characters embarks on a journey that pushes their endurance beyond measure and forces them to discover who they truly are. On the most fundamental level, Home Again asks the question, How would you survive?

The Canadian-produced feature, Sudz's second, was shot on location in TrinidadJamaica and Canada, earlier last year, and is described as "a searing drama in the vein of City of God."

Producers say it's a passion project for director Sudz, that the material is "really tough," and that the actors had to delve "into incredibly difficult emotional terrain."

Entertainment One has distribution rights to the film, with co-production partners The National Film Board and with the participation of Telefilm Canada, and the Harold Greenberg Fund.

No word on when and where it'll next screen.

Here's the trailer, and the poster follows underneath:

    I don't know. Considering Jamaican heritage, as an overall film, this one feels inauthentic. Maybe it's the trailer.

    Wow! Looks awesome!! Gave me goosebumps

    I'm looking forward to this. Seeing Paul Campbell in the trailer spiked my interest.

    It's supposed to screen at the Pan African Film Festival in February.

    I love this storyline premise! I agree great casting choices (I didn't know Fefe Dobson was acting now??). Also, not mentioned is Paul Campbell (Dancehall Queen/Third World Cop) who I saw in that brief clip.
    I will definitely be checking for this film. Just remind me (lol).

    Looks interesting, but most Jamaican Americans have a lot of contact with their yaadie family. Since my family in Jamaica is much wealthier than my broke ass, I would have no problem transitioning at all.

    This is partly true for me as well. I would probably be known as one of those 'poor relations' abroad (lol).
    Although, I do personally know people who've been deported and also those who are currently living undocumented in the U.S. They are not just Jamaicans, though.

    The cast and production for this were put together nicely. I will be looking out for this.
