Ghett’a Life

Ghett’a Life

Derrick is an inner-city teenager who dreams of being Jamaica’s next world boxing champion. However, it is an election year and politics divides the country and Derrick’s community. His father, a loyal party supporter, and Sin, the community’s no-nonsense don, forbid Derrick from going to the boxing gym, as to do so he has to cross party lines. Derrick defiantly follows his heart—and is confronted with the serious repercussions of his decision. An inspiring tale of overcoming adversity and ignorance in the name of unity.
