Storyline

SPRINTER tells the story of Akeem Sharp who is set to be Jamaica's next big track-and-field sensation. Akeem hopes a rise in the track and field world will take him to the U.S. to reunite him with his mother who has supported the family while living as an illegal resident 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. Not only does Akeem have to prove to himself and everyone that he can succeed, but also overcome the struggles that may ultimately bring him down.

Enjoyable from beginning to end!
20 September 2019 | by wilkins-g3See all my reviews

We absolutely loved this film and can truly see this becoming a cult classic. We have been raving about it to everyone we meet. It is just a shame that there is so little buzz about it in the UK and so few opportunities to view the film. Wonderful production, acting and the soundtrack is perfect - I hope this is being released as an album!

More films like this please!!! Loved it!
