Ghett'a Life

Rated NR 104 minutes

Derrick dreams of being Jamaica's next world light weight boxing champion, but it's election year and politics divide the country and Derrick's community. His father, a loyal party supporter, forbids 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. Derrick's father is so blinded by political tribalism that he sees his actions as betrayal. At the gym, a coach becomes Derrick's mentor and shows him that Jamaica is bigger than just one community and that dreams are worth fighting for. Derrick's journey of discovery takes the audience through his coming of age and the realisation that anything that divides cannot be good for anyone.
