Official Trailer

In 2008, Joseph, Tinashe, Pardon, and Marlvin left their homeland of Zimbabwe for South Africa, in the hopes of starting a new life. The four men did not know each other before they intersected in their new country, but each arrived with a similar experience: they encountered death and danger, lost their community and loved ones, and gave up their chosen professions with minimal odds for success in a historically racist nation already hostile to their arrival. Though they’d never tasted wine before, surprisingly, they all fell in love with the craft and became sommeliers. With their new skills, they hope to infiltrate another white world by competing as a team at the World Wine Tasting Championship in Burgundy, France.
