About the film:
Shot in Trinidad, Ghana, the UK and Canada, HERO is the story of Ulric Cross, who in 1941, left his small island home to seek his fortune, and became the RAF’s most decorated West Indian. His life took a different course when he followed the call of history and joined the Pan-African movement sweeping the world in the 1950s and 1960s.
