Country-boy Ivan leaves home in the Jamaican countryside and travels to Kingston , his head full of songs that he hopes will earn him fame and fortune. But fortune is hard to find as Ivan is ripped off by shady record producers and corrupt cops. He does find the fame he craves – but for all the wrong reasons.
The Harder They Come features all the songs from the film’s blazing soundtrack, including:
You Can Get It If You Really Want, Many Rivers to Cross, Pressure Drop, By the Rivers of Babylon, Sitting in Limbo and, of course, The Harder They Come.
