Shot in both the Bahamas and Minneapolis, Bahamian Son is based off of the true events of the films writer and star Reggie “Reggie Reg” Henderson. The film follows Kevin as he sets out to meet his 30 year estranged father, who is found to live in the Bahamas. Along the journey, Kevin examines his life growing up in North Minneapolis as he is faced with new challenges and unknown history that stand to test his measure as a man as well as the true worth of family.
