A potent mix of music, politics and sporting prowess, Stevan
Riley's exuberant documentary charts the rise of one of the most successful
sporting teams in history.

After a series of humiliating defeats in the mid 1970s, the West Indian
cricket team underwent an astonishing transformation from 'Calypso
Cricketers' to an unbeatable force. Against the back drop of Caribbean civil
unrest, apartheid-era South Africa and race riots in the UK, the team found
inspiration from the Black Power movement and took their politics directly to
the pitch.
Led by the great Clive Lloyd (and later the legendary Viv Richards), the
'Windies' assembled an explosive athletic attack on the pudgy colonial game
and their former masters. With their “four horsemen of the apocalypse”
(Michael Holding, Andy Roberts, Colin Croft and Joel Garner) bowling at over
90mph, they utterly destroyed their opponents and changed the game forever.

Intercutting exhilarating match footage from the 1970s and 1980s with
contemporary interviews, Riley expertly unfurls the politics, the music and
mantra behind these incredible individuals and their legendary defiance against
oppression.
