Ghetto teenager Derrick longs to be a professional boxer and represent Jamaica at the Olympics, but the gym that will make him a contender is in the opposing 'garrison' community, which means he has to risk his life in order to follow his dream. Ghett'a Life explores the hypocrisy of Jamaican politics, as power crazy 'dons', manipulate MPs and kill anyone who refuses to obey them.
