DIRECTOR / STORM SAULTER
Akeem Sharp is set to be Jamaica’s next big track-and-field sensation. He hopes a rise in the track and field world will reunite him with his mother who has supported the family while living as an illegal resident in the US for over a decade. But Akeem’s rising star is weighed down by turmoil at home: a volatile father, and an unruly older brother who insinuates himself into Akeem’s career as a means of escaping – or perhaps enhancing – his scam artist hustle.
