A tear-jerking teen sports romance. Melvin may be a bit slow, but he can run faster than anyone on the university athletics team. Will he make the championships and get the girl? Or will he withdraw into himself – with only a fish called Loneliness for company?

Introduced by Dr Gareth Stanton, African film academic and head of the Department of Communications at Goldsmiths, University of London.
