Synopsis

In 1988, Jamaica surprised everyone by entering a bobsled team at the Winter Olympics. This cheerful comedy is about how that unlikely sporting adventure started: with a bunch of sprinters not quite good enough for the Olympic team looking for another sport to suit them, and deciding to ignore the lack of snow on their island by picking the bobsled! They practise using sleds with wheels, but then have the shock of dealing with real icy conditions when they get to Canada. A sweet and funny film.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
