    • Synopsis
    • After witnessing the murder of his father as a child in a drug related shooting, Corey Johnson or “Swift” as he is known on the streets of East London, is destined for a life of crime... That is until a chance meeting with Max (Idris Elba) a troubled, washed-up sports agent who shows him that there is another path... Recognising Swift’s uncanny ability to run, Max has high hopes of training him to compete at the London Olympics, but Swift’s world won’t let him go without a fight…
      Swift is both a humorous and heartfelt coming of age story as well as the tale of a disgraced sports agent’s last chance for success and redemption….
      The film is to be released in the Spring of 2012 - the year of London’s Olympic games.
      Featuring cameos from Major sports stars such as Usain Bolt and music stars such as Tinie Tempah and Jessie J.
