Synopsis

Roki's Road takes a look into who Roki "Ba Skye" Josphats is.  Confident, talented, and armed with dance moves that give many international acts a run for their money, Roki takes the road less travelled by musicians.  He has the lonely task of being the songwriter, performer and producer of his own body of work as well as crafting hits for other acts.  In the film, the filmmakers look at how the self proclaimed 'Best Hook Man' interacts with his audience, follows him while he makes his album and discusses his motives and drive as the progressive artist that he is.
