Love, duty, death and dominoes make for an intoxicating cocktail in Chigger Foot Boys. Based on true events in the lives of Jamaicans who fought in World War One and set amid the banter in a rum bar near Kingston Harbour, four young men tell their stories of death and glory as the end of the British Empire looms.
