When a Jamaican sprinter is disqualified to the Olympic Games, he enlists the help of a dishonored coach to start the first Jamaican Bobsled Team.
Canada has hosted the Winter Olympics twice. The first time in 1988 in Calgary in the Canadian province of Alberta, as depicted in this movie, then about twenty-two years later, in 2010 in Vancouver in the Canadian province of British Columbia.

At the beginning of the film, when Derice is unable to qualify to the 1988 Summer Olympics Athletics, the president of the Jamaican Olympic Comitee tells him that to travel to the event he must practice either Cycling or Boxing, as those are the only other sports where they would participate. Actually Jamaica also participated in Table Tennis and Weightlifting.
