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

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
