After the death of famous runner Jeffrey Jacobs, the Jamaican public becomes enamored with the details of his life and speculates as to the motivation for his murder. Jeffrey’s father, a kind, reserved farmer, struggles to grieve while inundated by the inescapable media coverage. Through moments of rage and quiet contemplation, the camera is a window into a life burdened by the death of a child.
