SYNOPSIS OF 35 CENTS

It’s election time on the romantic Caribbean Island of Jamaica however, the campaign has been completely overwhelmed by extreme apathy & disillusionment. 

Fatigued by the ever increasing levels of poverty, debt & trade injustice, a new student organisation called the 'No Confidence Movement' emerges in an attempt to lead the electorate on a national boycott of the general elections. With various bilateral and multinational interests now at stake, a U.S. led military invasion is initiated to neutralize growing support for the boycott.

It is from within this cauldron that the students of the 'No Confidence Movement' take us on a frenetic journey that will ultimately determine the political future of their island.

Morris and his cast set about it with great spirit, fluid, fast-and-loose theatre.
— Time Out
A versatile cast with some powerful, moving and comic performances.
— New Line
Morris does it in exuberant style. It works too because of the skilled, quick-shifting character creations by its fine cast of five.
