(USA) In English

DIR Benjamin May, PRO Daniel B Levin, SCR , DP , EDIT , MUS , CAST Lloyd “Swee’ Pea” Daniels

A “mystical understanding of the game” made Lloyd “Swee’ Pea” Daniels a New York City basketball legend by the age of 16.  Christened the “next Magic Johnson,” his career effectively ended at age 21 after being shot 3 times in the chest after a tussle over $8 of cocaine. “The Legend of Swee’ Pea” follows the twists and turns of fortune in the life of a basketball prodigy: his dramatic downfall, miraculous comeback, and finally, the bittersweet confrontation with a life imperfectly lived.
