From a Yardie to a Yankee by Sardia Robinson
A young girl from the poorest parish in Jamaica dreams of going to America to be in the movies. Now grown up and successful, India Robinson flashes back and recounts her battles with dyslexia, bullies, racism, and absentee parents. With her vivid imagination, her singular passion, and a loving, but tough, grandmother’s support, India finally makes it to America joining a flawed mother she barely remembers. The film carries the audience through India’s emotional journeys, from self-doubt and resentment to acceptance and purpose with humor, drama, and an authentic Caribbean flare.
