Factory sealed DVD
Imported from USA
Based on a true story, this is the comedic saga of four Jamaican athletes going to extremes to compete as bobsled racers
at the Winter Olympics. With few resources and virtually no clue about winter sports, it's an uphill course for this
troupe from the tropics who are sliding on thin ice as they go for the gold in Calgary, Canada. Refusing to let anything
stand in their way, these four Jamaicans enlist the help of a down-and-out ex-champion American slider named Irv.
Unavoidably drawn back to a sport he had come to loathe, Irv is faced with coaching a team of complete novices. But once
committed, he is determined to turn them around and to somehow right the wrongs of his own failed career. It's a bumpy
ride but with pride, determination, and dignity, the bobsledders make their impossible dreams come true.|The filmmakers
traveled to Jamaica for the primary filming and shot the Winter Olympics scenes in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.|The movie
is based on a true story about the unlikely formation of a Jamaican bobsled team to compete in the 1988 Winter Olympics.
The participants have never even seen snow, let alone a bobsled.
