Small Axe tells five stories, with the first told across two episodes, and are set within London's West Indian community from the late 1960s to the early 80s.
The title Small Axe is derived from a Jamaican proverb which has resonance throughout the Caribbean, "if you are the big tree, we are the small axe". Small Axe is also the title of a Bob Marley song from his 1973 album Catch a Fire. It means that relatively marginal or small voices of dissent can successfully challenge more powerful voices.
