Summary
  • The comedy hit inspired by the true story of Jamaica's first Olympic bobsled team
  • Inspired by the true story of Jamaica's first Olympic bobsled team, this is the story of four unlikely athletes with one impossible dream. Now, with the help of an ex-champion as their coach, four Jamaicans leave their sunny tropical island home and enter the chilly Winter Olympics to compete for the gold in a sport they know nothing about--bobsled racing. Finding the courage in each other to give it their all, they meet the challenge and soon become heroes--taking the whole world along for the ride
