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, he survived the Second World War and became the RAF’s most decorated West Indian. But then his life took followed a very different course, when he followed the call of history and joined the Pan-African movement sweeping the world in the 50’s and 60’s.
HERO is not just about Cross’s extraordinary life and journey but about the dynamic and transformative times in which he lived.
