Dive deep into the eccentric life of punk rock reggae singer HR of Bad Brains. The charismatic frontman's explosive live performances helped pioneer hardcore punk while delivering an enlightening message of positive mental attitude. HR's heavy devotion to the Rastafarian faith guided him in a spiritual direction, but over the years HR’s increasingly unpredictable behavior convinced many that he is suffering from mental illness. Finding Joseph I delicately illustrates the true story behind the legendary lead singer's life, career and struggles, with never-before-seen archival footage and exclusive interviews. -Chris Metzler
