Unbroken: Jamaican amputee Laron Williamson takes up rowing with the aim of competing in the Paralympic Games. When he learns that the nature of his amputation means that he doesn’t qualify his choices are to give up rowing or compete against able-bodied rowers. “Unbroken” is the inspiring story of how Williamson defies the odds to qualify for the Jamaican Olympic Rowing Team.

I don’t call it ghetto: Single, divorced, mother-of-three, police officer Onika James-Turner has had a life filled with challenges, obstacles and heartache. In “I Don’t Call it Ghetto”, we see how her difficult past has only made her stronger, impelling her to reach for a different life, one in which she could help her community.
