Addis Ababa’s colorfully chaotic Merkato—Africa’s largest open-air market—provides the memorable setting of this vibrant work about a young woman attempting to escape the grind of poverty, for whom a lifelong talent becomes her way out. An indomitable spirit—and some good footwork—gets the otherwise luckless “Speedy” Selam through her daily grind; mainly busy running errands for her neighbors and dealing with her just-as-downtrodden boyfriend, she suddenly finds her life changed after a chance encounter with a running coach. Ethiopia’s legendary runner Haile Gebrselassie cameos in this inspiring, open-hearted tale of Ethiopian endurance, spirit, and faith.
