Ondene Marchant (Lucy Stanhope-Bosumpim) is beautiful, talented, and destined to major in law at Oxford. She’s spent her whole life following demanding study plans laid down by her ambitious mother Hyacinth (Suzann Mclean), a high-powered barrister determined to push her only child to the top.
After years of studying, Ondene is desperate to live a little. She discovers freestyle basketball, and takes up the offer of lessons from a charismatic and gifted student, Leon (Arinze Kene). When Hyacinth finds out, she resolves to put an end to the relationship.
Although Leon’s fighting against the odds to educate himself, Hyacinth is convinced he is bad news because he lives in the projects – a place she escaped from long ago.
As romance blossoms, the sweethearts face an uphill struggle with Hyacinth as they try to succeed in life and love.
Freestyle is the new Brit film on in cinemas on Feb 26th, and oddly, on DVD March 1st. Please, go and see it in the cinema first, then buy yourself (and your loved ones) a copy on DVD.
