It covers the assassination attempt on Marleys life, his exile in London, the kidnapping and decapitation of the Barretts father, and the death by gunfire of both Peter Tosh and drummer Carlton Barrett.Bitter acrimony followed Marleys own death from cancer as the iconic singers legacy was parlayed into a multi-million dollar industry.
