Details

Akeem is set to be Jamaica’s next big track-and-field sensation. He hopes that success in the sport will take him to the US to reunite with his mother, who has supported the family while living as an illegal resident for over a decade. But Akeem’s rising stardom is weighed down by turmoil at home: a volatile father and a scam-artist older brother. An inspiring story of struggle over adversity, writer-director Storm Saulter’s film sets itself apart with its nuanced characterisation and unique Jamaican setting.

Executive produced by Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith, Sprinter stars Kadeem Wilson (Ghett’ A Life), Dennis Titus (The Mighty Quinn), Shantol Jackson (Yardie), Bryshere Y. Gray (Empire), and David Alan Grier (In Living Color), with songs by Grammy Award-winning artist NE-YO and Jamaican dancehall performer Shenseea.
