Bashment

Synopsis: After a brutal gay bash attack at a reggae dance hall competition, a group of thuggish performers defend their actions as being provoked by the victim. They serve a shockingly light sentence, and as their release date nears, their original public defender rallies with the victims to examine the homophobic song lyrics and ask the question 'Did the music make you do it?'.
